The Ultimate Intimate Florist Hideaway

For 2023 we have chosen the beautiful Town Head Estate on the shores of Lake Windemere to host our Ultimate Intimate Florist Hideaway. 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 ceremony set up and large scale 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!

Townhead Estate ..

Set in 110 acres of private ancient parkland on the unspoilt shores of Lake Windermere, for the first time in its history the Cox family are making this exclusive location available to everyone to enjoy.

Your stay…
Checking in on Monday from 3.30pm the Town Head estate will be your dream home for 3 days. Your time at Town Head 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 beautifully refurbished boat house over looking Lake Windemere.

You can choose from one of Town Heads individually and newly refurbished 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 be offered in order of places booked.

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. With the emphasis on sustainability we’ll work together to create stunning wedding scenes that will include ceremony flowers, wedding breakfast flowers and installations too. 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 each day by Jessica Reeve Photography. We’ll bring a model to Town Head  to capture that all important portfolio 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, we’re in the very safe culinary hands of Julian Ankers, The Cumbrian Chef.

On our final day we’ll down tools at 3pm to celebrate with a tea and cake! We’ll present everyone with a Tallulah Rose Flower School certificate and give you all the opportunity for any final questions before we depart at 4pm.
