We are delighted to welcome our floristry tutors who lead our flower workshops with their creative flair and bags of enthusiasm for all things floral. All our tutors are qualified florists who also run their own floristry businesses and share a passion for British grown flowers and sustainable floristry.
Katy Rayner – Bracken and Twine Flowers
Katy is a floral designer based in Norfolk. Her signature floral style is natural, wild and whimsical, favouring locally grown seasonal flowers and foliage’s. Her designs have an untethered and organic feel and she enjoys using quintessential country garden style flowers.
Even after 14 years of honing in her skills, her enthusiasm for floral design remains undiminished. Katy feels passionate about sharing her knowledge and inspiring fellow floral enthusiasts. She feels it’s important to nurture creativity and above all have fun!
Jane Farthing – Daphne and Doreen Flower Studio
Jane is an artisan florist working from a little studio near Norwich. Her love of the natural world and the seasons is reflected in her romantic, informal, abundant and sometimes wild style of flowering. Jane is passionate about using British flowers, sourcing locally grown blooms wherever possible and she is a member of the “Flowers from the Farm” organisation. She’s a firm believer in using seasonal flowers, choosing the best of what’s currently available in the garden and is looking to make her floristry more eco-friendly by not using floral foam and using recyclable packaging.
Jane loves to use a wiggly stem or two in her creations and will encourage her students to do the same! There’s so much joy and pleasure to be found in arranging flowers and she is looking forward to sharing her knowledge and experience with you.
