I am a hard working florist with a business in Sheffield. I also run classes for Flower Arranging. I have been in Floristry for 25 years and run the shop with my mum - a true family business. I studied for my qualifications at Rother Valley College in Dinnington, and achieved the National Diploma, the highest of the Society of Floristry qualifications.


St Oswalds Church

At the beginning of July, my learners and I participated in a flower festival which took place at St Oswalds Church in Sheffield, to celebrate their centenary. I was asked by them if we would like to decorate the church for the festival. So after lots of planning, this is what we did. There was a group of 10 - 15 with me as organiser. When we had finished the church looked stunning. Everyone put so much hard work into it and I was proud of everyone! We had some fantastic comments. It was a great experience.

I started working with my mum straight after I left school, working on Saturdays. After 10 years of this, I decided to go into the job on a more permanent basis. I started my training and continued working part time at the shop. I received my final qualification after 5 years and am now running the shop on a full time basis together with my mum. I have therefore had lots of experience working within the industry.

I have been teaching now for about 4 years. I was also asked to help with a flower festival for a local Church Centenary, which we did as a class. That was a great experience.

Feb 1988 - Jul 2012


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.


I run classes at the shop on a weekly basis every Tuesday evening 7pm - 9pm. As there is no room hire to pay for I only ask for payment as and when you can attend the class. It is a very informal class for people who wish to learn how to do various flower arrangements and bouquets, without training for professional qualifications. The cost of your flowers etc is on top of the cost of the classes. This is an ongoing class and caters for people of all ages and abilities.

I also do classes on a Wednesday afternoon 1pm - 3pm and Friday morning 9am - 11am for the WEA. The Wednesday class takes place at St John's Church Hall, Totley, Sheffield and the Friday class is at Woodthorpe Primary School. These are both leisure classes for adult learners and are very informal and friendly, with mixed ages and abilities.

I also do individual or group workshops.
