We'll teach you a lesson
If you love flowers as much as we do, come and join us at a Wild Rosamund flower workshop. We teach a range of floristry skills from hand-tied bouquets, to arrangements in floral foam and seasonal wreaths. Our workshop sizes are deliberately small (maximum 10 people), allowing your tutor to give every student plenty of individual advice and attention.
Our tutor, Bridget Davidson, is a skilled florist with more than 10 years’ experience, including managing florists, apprentices and even work experience candidates. Complete beginners are not a problem! Her friendly hands-on approach and creativity will guide and inspire you through the preparation, design and making of your arrangement, making sure you leave with the skills and confidence to have a go on your own.
All Wild Rosamund workshops use seasonal British-grown flowers and foliage, as well as locally-foraged botanicals to make your finished piece unique and full of character.
Our workshops include all plant materials, any sundries and packaging, use of tools, a drink and a light snack.
Hand-tied bouquet workshop
Learn to make your own hand-tied spring bouquet in this special after-hours workshop at Fitzbillies, the historic and much-loved central Cambridge bakery and restaurant. You'll start by learning the basic design principles that make a good bouquet. Next you'll be shown how to prepare and condition your flowers and foliage. Then, using beautiful British-grown blooms, your tutor will demonstrate how to build up and tie a sumptuous bouquet. Finally you’ll be taught how to wrap your bouquet professionally. Then – with your tutor’s guidance – it’s your turn. Your finished bouquet is yours to take home and enjoy. The price includes all plant and packaging materials, use of tools, a drink and a taste of the fabulous baked goods Fitzbillies is famous for. Cake and flowers! What are you waiting for?
