Thanks to the artistic excellence of local florist and floristry teacher, Liz Dowthwaite, we offer a select number of workshops throughout the year where clients can learn how to make breath-taking arrangements with the help, support and advice of Liz - and of course an abundance of beautiful fresh flowers and foliage.
