Love to be Green Florists offer Seasonal Recreational Flower Arranging Classes, Short Courses and Workshops within Newton Abbot and the surrounding area. They also offer one-to-one tuition and bespoke courses to suit your requirements for example Hen Parties, Birthdays, Creative Team Building and other occasions or events.

Classes are suitable for the beginner, for those who are interested in flower arranging as a hobby, for those who wish to improve on their existing skills and some special courses are designed for those who wish to learn more advanced techniques-Master Floristry.

Susan, owner of Love to be Green Florists, a qualified Florist and Qualified Tutor has in the past, taught City & Guilds Courses in the subjects of Interior Floral Design/Floristry/ Flower Arranging as well as various non accredited Floral Courses for Devon County Council.

The Love to be Green class venues are based in Newton Abbot, Bovey Tracey and in the pretty village of Kingskerswell, South Devon.

These independent, informal, chatty yet informative classes have been very popular, some running on a regular basis for almost 15 years in Kingskerswell, Newton Abbot, Devon.
In most cases the classes will be held within a professional classroom setting and as per all our classes, still informal and interactive.

Susan's style and floristry experience are complemented by her excellent teaching methods and ability to communicate processes and techniques in a calm, patient and concise way.
Classes are a reasonable size and friendly with lots of individual attention and suitable for a variety of skill sets.

All sessions include a Tutor demonstration with step by step instructions. In many cases a teaching assistant will be present at the session.

During the session/s Learners will work on their own practical piece using up to date techniques, they will investigate current trends and will be introduced to new materials with which to incorporate into their design.

Numbers are limited at each session to enable us to give each individual participant plenty of support, guidance and attention.
We aim to make the sessions a unique learning experience for the Students.

Workshops and courses are constantly updated to reflect changing trends and techniques.
