The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers
Covent Garden Experience
Duration: 1 day
Time: 8.30am - 4pm
Details: All flowers and materials provided. Complimentary tea and coffee throughout the day
This is the ultimate package for visitors to London. You will kick off with a visit to the New Covent Garden wholesale Flower Market, before making your way to the Academy to enjoy an all-day creative session on how to arrange flowers into beautiful hand-tied bouquets.
The hustle and bustle of stallholders found under the roof of the enormous market in Nine Elms, represent a trade that has proudly existed over many decades - one that we are of course incredibly keen to support and lucky to have for our use.
After introducing you to our own suppliers, we will show you the various areas within the market and the various ways people purchase there.
Then it's back to the Academy to make those bouquets - the perfect spirals, the essential wrapping and bagging and that all-important water bubble from which your stems will drink. We will teach you it all.
This the perfect floral 'day out'.
