Master the art of floristry at Valentines Mansion

Get creative in the new floral masterclass at Valentines Mansion. Led by a qualified florist, not only will this class be great fun, but also the chance to learn a skill for life.

Paying tribute to the colourful history of the Mansion, the class will take you back in time and recreate a traditional table arrangement, typical of what would have been used to decorate Valentines during the Victorian and Georgian eras. During the time of Sir Charles Raymond, as well as the Holcombe’s and Ingleby’s, the Mansion would have been adorned with such arrangements, using flowers freshly picked from the Valentines Gardens.

With all materials supplied, including a stylish ceramic planter, all you need to bring is yourself. Fresh flowers in seasonal colours will be used to create your masterpiece, and our expert tutor will equip you with lots of tips and techniques to get the most from your blooms – guidance we’re sure will come in handy when you practice your new skill back at home. Flower arrangements make wonderful gifts, which you’ll be able to make yourself after this workshop!

The ‘English Cottage Garden Floral Masterclass’ will take place on Friday 23 August at 7pm to 8.30pm, and tickets are now on sale for just £45, which includes all materials, as well as refreshments. Pre-booking is essential via
