International Designer Workshop

At Thrive, we’re so excited to announce the full details of our two day International Designer Workshop with the totally awesome floral designer Leopoldo Gomez, all the way from Mexico.  Here goes!!

What are we covering?
Well, we just love the techniques, structures and frames that’s featured in Leopoldo’s work and wanted to see first hand just how these are made.  So we will be covering just that: Advanced Mechanics - for arrangements, bridal bouquets, hand-tieds and wall art.  There will be in depth demonstrations of the designs, then chance to make the pieces of your choice.  Perfect for extending your skill base, design portfolio and cpd.

How many people?
At Thrive, we love to keep it small and personal – that way you can see everything that’s going on – every little twist and turn of the structures and designs being made and to get plenty of personal advice and assistance from both Leopoldo and myself (Claire!).  We are limiting places to a very exclusive 15 students, so please be quick to book your place.

Where will it take place?
The workshop will take place at our stunning barn studio in Pakenham, Suffolk, where you can relax and enjoy your time with us away from the hustle and bustle of your busy working life!  It’s quiet and peaceful – so you’ll have chance to take everything in, with the added advantage of checking out our fabulous range of floristry books, tools and more while you’re here!!  We have a list of local accommodation we can recommend upon booking your place.

What's the cost?
We've now added a workshop on the Monday too, so you have a choice of booking one, two or all three days.  The cost is:
One day: £350 - choice of Saturday, Sunday or Monday.
Two days: £650 or if paid in full by bacs £625. choice of Sat and Sunday, or Sunday and Monday.
Three days: £975 or in paying bacs £950.


What's included?
All tuition by Leopoldo, plus extra assistance from myself (Claire and the Thrive Team!); lunch (please let us know if you have any dietary requirements) and refreshments; flower materials, containers and bases as required... and a thoroughly good time.

How do I book
BE QUICK - as places are limited, we’d advise to call 01359 231009 or email to check availability first.  We prefer payment by BACS to save on bank fees, so if you get in touch we can forward you an invoice and our bank details.  If you’d like to pay by card you can do so online or over the phone – we do have to charge a small fee of %5 I’m afraid to cover transaction fees.
