Sustainable Floristry with Fiona Pickles

As part of our Sustainable Floristry Series we are delighted to welcome Fiona Pickles from Firenza Flowers to Levens Hall.

Fiona will bring her expertise to the world famous topiary gardens of Levens Hall demonstrating her expertise for sustainable large scale installations.

Here’s what Fiona has to say about sustainable floristry methods..

I am very keen to devise different mechanics and techniques to use as an alternative to floral foam. Foam does not degrade and just ends up in land fill and the small bits of foam that break off whilst soaking it, end up in the sea if tipped down our sinks and drains to be ingested by fish and other marine life. I teach foam-free classes to other florists wishing to reduce their dependence on this floristry ‘staple’.

We’ll be using the beautiful British blooms grown by Suzie from Picked at Dawn. Suzie will be with us for ‘growers chat’ too.

Your day will begin with an inspirational tour of Levens topiary gardens and after watching Fiona you’ll have chance to create small installation using Fiona’s sustainable methods. Rachel and Fiona will be on hand to help and guide you.

Course Price – £350

2 Week Career Change Course

Our 2 week Intensive Career Change Course is full to bursting with both the practical and business skills you require to launch your own creative floristry business. Working from the basic to the advanced we take you from hand-tied bouquets through to large scale installations. It is our will that you find your own creative style of floristry and in order that we promote this within your practise you’ll find that we don’t demonstrate our designs fully. If we do this you will simply copy and be less likely to grow in confidence as quickly as we need you too. We do of course lead and guide you through your practical peice however, we encourage you to find your own way resulting in a style that’s true to you. We always provide an abundance of the most beautiful flowers, British and local when possible for you to work with. We lead the way showing you how to choose your flowers, what to look for and most importantly what they’re called! It is vital for your confidence that you choose your own flowers, we won’t be there post course to choose for you and of course it also means that your arrangement will be individual too – just like you!

Alongside the practical elements we also help you to build the skills required to start your new creative business. Included in these skills are photography, branding, marketing, social media, business start up skills and a group business coaching session. Once you have completed your course with us you are invited to join our closed Tallulah Rose Student Forum. Here you will be welcomed by former Tallulah students all willing to help and support you through those early days and beyond ! We also have a Tallulah Freelance Floristry page where you’ll find intern, work experience and job opportunities too.

We are often asked ‘what is the difference between the 2 and 4 week course?’ Our 2 week course was written four years ago, initially at the request of school teachers wanting to learn during the summer holidays, it was so successful that we continued! We can’t squeeze everything into two weeks, however after years of experience we know exactly what elements we need to teach in order that you have both the skills and the confidence to launch your own florist business. You can see from our Student Stories that many have indeed done just that!

Without stating the obvious, that we have you for two weeks less, the main differences between the courses are; business skills – you are given exactly the same information that is included within our 4 week course however we simply don’t have the time to discuss all the business modules in such great detail, two days versus five. We use our time together wisely however and choose the modules that are most beneficial discussed within a group environment, for example, ideas to market your business and where to see your floristry services.

Practical skills – you have eight days of practical floristry on our 2 week Career Change Course and fourteen days on our 4 week course. The additional days on our 4 week course cover planning, purchasing and designing your own small event along with additional large scale installation work. If completing our 2 week course is your only option please don’t panic, we’ll ensure that you leave armed with all the skills you need to set you on your way. Remember too that you can always return to add bolt on days or short courses as and when you feel you need them.

Everyone is awarded a certificate on completion of the course however as we mentioned above it’s not goodbye! Team Tallulah and our former students are always there for you as you leave the safety of school and launch your own florist business.

NB. All tools and equipment required to complete the course are provided for you and any vessel you use during the course is yours to *keep. A Tallulah Rose apron is given to you on your first day of school and is yours to take away after you have completed the course. We have a wide range of books that you may borrow during your time with us and we don’t require that you buy any books ahead of your course however we do recommend The British Flowers book by Claire Brown. This book will become your flower bible and worth every penny – and no we’re not paid to say that! This book will help you to become familiar with not only flower names but their seasons too.

*excluding any hired items or items belonging to the school.

If you scroll down the page you’ll see the breakdown of both practical and business skills included within this two week course.

Each week consists of tuition from Monday to Friday. Class starts at 10.00am and finishes at 4.30pm.

Course Price – £2,850
A deposit payment of £500 is required to secure your place. The final payment must be received  six weeks prior to your chosen course date.

We, and those that have gone before you understand what an exciting but terrifying moment this can be. Making a change is never easy but not making the change? Well we think that’s even harder.

We promise that we will exceed your expectations and even though you don’t realise it yet, (how could you you have too much whirling around your head!) this course will not only lead you towards a new career but in many respects a new improved you too!

We are often asked ‘what is the difference between the 4 and 2 week course?’ Without sounding obvious, it’s simple, we have you for two weeks longer and can therefore teach you more. The first two weeks of the 4 week course are 100% practical, week three is 100% business and week four allows time for both practical and business. During your final week with us we will recap where you feel it’s necessary, a revision day. And finally we allow time and for you to design, order, cost and produce three final pieces of your choice. This exercise allows you the opportunity of a trial run in designing and purchasing for a small event.

With only 8 places available this course offers the opportunity to learn within a small group. Not for the fainthearted you’ll be designing and making everyday, from bouquets and bowls to stair cases and installations. Our aim is to teach you as much as we can using only sustainable floristry methods. Come ready to learn and take away an improved new florist you!

The history of Silverholme ..

Built in 1820, Silverholme is a Grade II listed building. It has been immaculately restored and is the only carbon-neutral Georgian manor house in the country.

It is fully furnished with modern luxuries but holds true to its period character. Light and spacious reception rooms together with elegantly designed en-suite bedrooms ensure guests experience the Lake District at its very best. Silverholme sits proudly on the shore of lake Windermere.

Your stay…
Checking in on Monday from 3pm Silverholme will be your dream home for 3 days. Your time at Silverholme will start with a warm welcome and a tour around the house and grounds.  You’ll have time to check into your room to relax before dinner is served in the beautiful wood panelled private dining room

You can choose from one of Silverholme’s individually styled rooms. All en-suite bedrooms are light and spacious, with distinctive furniture and style and views of the lake or woodland views. Many have both a walk-in shower and bath. Once your booking is received we’ll send you information on each available room for you to choose. Please note that room choice will work on a first come first serve basis.

Breakfast will be served from 8.30am each day and we’ll meet at 10am to get started!
Over the course of 3 days you’ll work both individually and in teams of just two or three. We’ll work together to create stunning wedding scenes that will include ceremony flowers, wedding breakfast flowers, staircase and installations too, all foam free! Everyone will make a bridal bouquet finished with beautiful silk ribbons from Northern Hands as well as individual bowl arrangements hand made by Rebecca Callis Porcelain.
Weather permitting, we will work both indoors and out and you’ll have the opportunity to wander through the grounds taking photographs. Your work will be captured daily by the fabulous Jessica Reeve Photography. We’ll bring a model to Silverholme to capture that all important wedding bouquet shot.

We’ll break for lunch each day and enjoy views over lake Windermere. Each day we’ll have business huddles to  discuss the business of business! Quoting and costing, the logistics of large-scale wedding work, hiring freelancers, transportation and set up along with social media and photography – the dos and don’ts! We’ll enjoy a relaxing dinner together each evening in the private dining room.

Introduction to Floristry

This is a fantastic course for anyone looking to gain practical floristry skills. It’s a great opportunity to immerse yourself in a delicously scented floral environment and perhaps explore whether flowers might take you on a new career journey…

In our relaxed school room environment we introduce you to the foundations of floristry.  Over the course of three days you will make and take away; a hand tied bouquet, a natural button hole,  a floral crown, an urn arrangement, a foliage wreath, and a seasonal arrangement.

This is a high energy course and we encourage you to enjoy working with the natural beauty of seasonal flowers and take as many photographs of your work as possible. In our experience, these three days are often the start of a longer journey with us and so the images you take could be the foundations of your very first portfolio!

Each day commences at 10.00 am and will finish at approximately 4.30pm.

Course Price: – £550

Reserve your place by booking online or email us at registrations@tallulahroseflowerschool.com and we’ll do the rest.
