“My eyes filled with tears when I saw what an amazing job Jades had done!”

Floristry Courses & Workshops

We offer an extensive range of courses - from fun, relaxed workshops, to courses for those looking for a career change, or classes for existing florists hoping to extend their skills

As creators of luxury wedding flowers for over thirty years, the team at Jades Flowers are well equipped to offer advice from traditional floristry skills, to creative knowledge on the latest trends.   Beverley's love of floristry has led her to share her skills and knowledge with new florists and lovers of all things flowers!

Held in our pretty studio, set in the beautiful Essex Countryside, our range of classes are designed to suit all. From fun, taster workshops, to bespoke, 1:1 tutoring & professional, in-depth courses, we offer expertise to suit complete beginners, through to experienced florists.

Beverley Nichols, business director, has worked with several, top London florists, including Paul Thomas, Claridges, The Four Seasons & many others. These years of vast experience led to her establishing her own Flower School, in order to share her floral wisdom & love for teaching.

We teach to both City & Guilds and The Society of Floristry levels, offering core floristry skills & providing you with the knowledge, confidence and inspiration to go forward, to create your own designs & even start your own business.

Our classes are small & intimate, so that we can deliver a hands-on approach & offer extra support when required. We can, however, also accommodate larger groups for workshops. Our ‘Hand-tied Bouquet’ workshop is perfect for Hen Parties, or as a gift for Mothers’ Day, for example. Make flower crowns with a glass of bubbly, or create a beautiful gift bouquet to take home with you.
