Go with an expert to New Covent Garden, learn how to pick the best blooms, followed by a Skandi Bouquet workshop.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
An experience gift for the budding florist or a step towards your new career!
Visiting New Covent Garden flower market is a delight and a thrill, also for the newbie somewhat intimidating. For a start there’s the scale of the place. It’s huge. Everyone seems to know where to go and what to do. The market traders work at speed, and they know their regulars. This is a serious business community. Flowers, foliage, plants jostle for space - and you aren’t buying a bunch, you are buying boxes. It is easy to feel very much like the new kid on the block so you don’t engage.
TELL ME MORE
This is the moment to think ‘guide’, a professional steeped in flower power to introduce you to market protocol. This tour is as much about learning as watching - how to choose the best blooms and what to look out for - British grown flowers are everywhere but you have to know how to spot them.
When you’ve cracked the market, then it’s off to their studio in Clerkenwell to learn how to hand tie bouquets. The house style is relaxed - wild with a Skandi twist. Khin is your teacher and absolutely knows his alliums from his alchemilla. Expect to learn a lot. You will leave with a beautiful bouquet and the confidence to fill vases that not only look beautiful but miraculously last, due to expert preparation and conditioning.
THE ALL IMPORTANT DETAILS
The tour and workshop last for 3 hours, meeting at the Flower market and then on to Khin's studio in Clerkenwell.
Tours happen every Saturday starting at 8am.
Leave with a beautiful bouquet.
