    Award-Winning Floral Design by Master Florist Kate Thomas

    Specialising in bespoke handmade floral designs alongside a unique personal service.

  • The Flower School

    As a Master Florist with years of experience, I am always keen to continue educating myself and to pass on the designs and creative techniques I’ve learned. I am a qualified teacher of floristry in further education and an experienced demonstrator and I run a series of workshops throughout the year here at my boutique flower shop in Wokingham, Berkshire. We can also arrange flower arranging at your home in Bracknell, Wokingham, Berkshire.

    Whether you are looking to master the technique of the hand-tied bouquet, looking for inspiration for party flowers or trying your hand at Christmas designs, we have a workshop to inspire you. It is also possible for us to even come to your home to run a workshop. We offer sessions for individuals or small groups up to eight bespoke and tailored to suit your group. From our boutique flower shop in Wokingham, we can provide a range of different courses suitable for beginners and the more experienced. The warm and friendly atmosphere will make you feel at ease and will bring out your creative side. You will be amazed at what you can achieve with a little expert guidance. If you prefer Kate can come to your club or private home  within Berkshire to run one of her fabulously creative workshops.
