Highgate Florist Flower School.
Welcome to Highgate Florist & Flower School, where I invite you to escape the stresses of everyday life and immerse yourself in the world of flowers and creativity.
I am delighted to announce our exciting range of workshops and short courses, both at our serene nursery in Rotherfield and online, designed to not only cultivate your floral skills but also provide a tranquil haven for relaxation.
With 17 years of floristry expertise, specializing in weddings, funerals, and retail, I've proudly managed my own business for the past 12 years. However, after the birth of my daughter, Blossom, I decided to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of retail and channel my energy into my true passion for teaching and creating memorable events.
Throughout the years, I've had the privilege of instructing numerous workshops, and what truly warms my heart is witnessing the creativity and sheer joy each student brings to our sessions.
My workshops cater to a diverse range of learners, from those just starting with hand-tied arrangements to introductory floristry courses. Moreover, I encourage you to embrace your unique style, and for those seeking personalized guidance, I offer one-on-one sessions.
I eagerly look forward to welcoming you to Highgate Florist & Flower School, where you'll not only discover the beauty and artistry of floristry but also find a retreat from life's demands and an opportunity to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate through the magic of flowers.
Meet Kerrie, the passionate owner of Highgate Florist & Flower School.
