1:1 Classes

 
 

Our private 1:1 classes are all about curating a floristry day that is tailor made to you, whether it is perfecting a skill you already have or trying something completely new. 
India's style is focused towards the wild and unrestrained beauty of floristry, embracing the way flowers and foliage grow. India will help you challenge yourself with the use of texture, colour and form, allowing you to express your personality through your work.

You will cover up to two different floral pieces of your choice per day, based on the skills you are looking to learn or improve on. This includes anything from a large scale urn and a bridal bouquet to creating a full tablescape with multiple centrepieces and styling details.
Please note if you wish to create a large scale installation piece we can only cover this in one day. India is happy to discuss what options are available to you prior to you booking the class. Please email studio@vervainflowers.com to discuss these options further.

Each student will have an exciting and wide selection of flowers to choose from. From April to October the majority of flowers and foliage available on a 1:1 class are picked from the garden at the studio. There are hedges lined with hundreds of unusual daffodils, ranunculus, iris, peonies, a large rose garden and rows and rows of annuals as well as an abundance of foraged materials from the surrounding farm. Students will have the opportunity to cut more flowers from the garden during the day which encourages them to own the work they create.

Every class is held at Vervain’s studio inside an 18th century timber framed barn, the barn is bursting with character and atmosphere and will be your stunning backdrop. With acres of land surrounding us we have the perfect opportunity to forage from the hedgerows and woodlands. There is also a large garden packed full of unusual perennials for you to wander through as well as a natural swimming pond. So if it's a hot day feel free to bring along a swimsuit and have a dip before you head home with your car full of flowers. 

We can also arrange for a photographer to shoot you and your work at the studio during your class at an additional cost. 1:2's or 1:3's are also available, please email for more info.
