The Judith Blacklock Flower School

The Judith Blacklock Flower School

19 November 2016, 14.00-17.30
Christmas Wreath & Afternoon Tea at The Halkin
£98.00 all materials included
Judith will teach guests how to make a beautiful festive wreath, whether you’re an amateur or more experienced with flowers. The wreath will be moss based and decorated with long-lasting evergreens, dried fruits, cones and berries.


The next stop is COMO The Halkin, just a short walk away through leafy Belgravia. On arrival, the attentive staff will pour guests a glass of mulled wine before indulging in the Spanish-influenced afternoon tea from the Michelin-starred chefs at Ametsa. Guests can enjoy the flamboyant ‘New Basque’ twists on the British tradition, with sandwiches and cakes replaced by tapas and visually stunning festive sweet treats in the Halkin Bar.


If you or your family would like to join the afternoon tea only, this is available for £30.00 per person.


5, 7 December 2016, 08.30-12.30
Flowers for Beginners - Christmas Special
£165.00 all materials included, plus tea and coffee provided
You will start the day at New Covent Garden Flower Market where you cannot fail to be wowed and inspired by the vast selection of flowers, foliage, plants, vases, containers, candles, ribbons, baubles - and just about everything you could possibly need. 

We will introduce you to stunning blooms, teach you how to choose the freshest and loveliest specimens - and how to care for them so that they last over the festive season.

Following this immersion into the world of flowers, taxis will take you to Kinnerton Street for a much deserved breakfast of croissants and coffee close to the flower school in Knightsbridge where we will continue with all the tips you could need, plus the chance to make a stunning Christmas table centrepiece to take home.


26 November 2016, 10.30-13.00
1 December 2016, 18.30-20.45
3, 8 December 2016, 12.30-15.00
Judith's Christmas Wreath Masterclass
£150.00 all materials included
During this very special class, Judith will share the delights of Christmas wreath-making. Using a larger frame than average you will use seasonal foliage, flowers and decorations to create your own unique wreath to take home. The only dilemma is whether to hang it from your door, or give it pride of place on the kitchen or dining room table.


Judith will also demonstrate other festive designs while you enjoy mince pies and a glass of something special. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions you have about any aspect of floral design and working with flowers. This is a class for everyone and no previous knowledge is required.


If you prefer to choose one of the following as a base colour then please contact the school by email stating your preference: Golds, Silvers, Pinks or Reds (or let us know your favourite colour scheme and we may be able to oblige).
