Demonstrations and teach ins for stately homes and historic houses
Fiona's style of floristry works perfectly with grand houses, she can offer an insight into how to design beautiful pieces from what grows in the gardens and on the estates.
Floral Artist in Residence
Fiona works with resident teams at large, stately and country houses, offering various options of collaboration or tuition in her trademark natural style, this may be to the gardening team, resident floristry teams or members of the wider household or the public with installations, open days, festivals etc.
Fiona can discuss which flowers to use and in what colours, as well as provide guidance on how to spot those 'special' ingredients that make Fiona's designs stand out. She can demonstrate how to pick and condition the flowers as well as how to create stunning designs, be it for a small vase for the bedside of guests to huge statement pieces.
Fiona was Creative Director for Castle Howard Flower Festival 2018 has worked with Castle Howard and Chatsworth House and has just introduced a special festive day in December at Harewood House providing demonstrations for their gardening and floristry teams, she also demonstrated at Castle Howard flower festival 2017.
All tuition is designed around the needs of each venue and person so email Fiona to chat through any learning needs.
