Great morning spent making a spring door wreath with Claire from Amber Jane florists. We arrived to our own box full of greenery and our willow hoop. After a demonstration on how to get started, we chose our flowering bulbs, dried flowers, feathers, moss and much more from a generous display and set to work. It was really enjoyable and Claire was on hand to help and advise.
I would thoroughly recommend booking and we then had our box to pop the finished wreath in to travel home.
The venue staff could not have been more helpful at Creative Plants and the cream tea to finish in their cafe was good.

This was a birthday present.
Amber was fab, so patient, attentive and knowledgable.
Venue was small but pretty location, im not sure I would take a course here in the winter.
Materials were fantastic, beautiful presentation, loved having our own box, which really helped.
Learned about the journey from start to finish to make a wreath and had to challenge creative skills I didn’t know I had.
The day was good value for money.
I liked learning something new and meeting new people and had a fun time out.

This was a wonderful introduction to wreath making. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time so I carefully checked out the various courses beforehand. I chose this class because of the the beautiful images on the tutor’s website, and I wasn’t disappointed! You really do get your money’s worth, and more.

We learned how to make a wreath from scratch using a wire frame, moss and an absolute cornucopia of dried and fresh flowers, fruit, berries, leaves, branches and grasses. Most were foraged and some foraged that morning.

We learned about everything from what to pick and when, the legalities of foraging (I didn’t know there were any!), how to furnish the base, how to balance the foliage, how to mount the fruit and berries, and how to quality check throughout. It went in a blur and plenty of chat was to be had. At the end we walked out with huge wreaths - mine admittedly a bit lopsided - which we were very proud of.

I’ll definitely continue making wreaths and I’ll definitely book more workshops with the tutor. You’re in good hands!

Hi Maggie,

The class and the tutors were absolutely superb - thank you! The quality of the items provided for us to make the wreathes was excellent, the tutors couldn't have been more helpful and it was so much fun. I feel like I have a new skill and it was a wonderful relaxing and sociable way to learn. 10/10!

Fantastic! Thank you so much to Claire for providing such a professional, well organised class. This was the focal point of our company's "Wellbeing Week" and it was a resounding success. Everyone created beautiful Autumn Wreaths with the gorgeous natural materials provided by Amber Jean flowers.
Thank you again!

Claire and Karen were fantastic. We had a lot of fancy material to work with and with their support and advice, every single one of 13 of us left with a dazzling wreath. This workshop was an amazing way to express our creative sides and our personalities and a beautiful wreath for each home came as a bonus. We will hang our wreaths on our doors and over our fireplaces, proud of ourselves. Massive thanks to our instructors!

I loved doing this course with Claire, who was very generous in sharing her wealth of knowledge and experience with me. Claire covered several different types of flower arranging during the course, and gave excellent advice on topics of particular interest to me. I would recommend her courses!
