workshops

Whether you’re a passionate beginner, someone wanting to explore a new career option or an experienced florist looking to boost your portfolio and try new things, I’m excited to welcome you to the Sarah Harper Studio.

My studio is a countryside haven.

It’s an open space, flooded with sunlight that looks out over my ever-changing flower patch. Inside, you’ll find a place to work, and a place to relax – custom made oak beams have been designed especially for hanging installations, and the luxurious sofas, log burning stove and stacks of magazines are made for curling up with a glass of fizz and letting ideas develop.

This gorgeous place is where I create all my floral designs, and I am thrilled to be opening its doors for a series of workshops that will help you make some floral magic, too.

From fun and relaxed group sessions to intensive 1:1 days with me, our varied programme of classes and workshops are suitable for everyone.

This page will be regularly updated with details of our upcoming workshops, so check back to see what we have on offer and keep up to date with our plans.

I can’t wait to start work with you
