It’s getting Christmassy at the Academy and Tina has been busy filming a few short festive tutorials for you to watch on our social media! Have a go at bringing some Christmas sparkle to your home this month and be sure to tag us in all your designs, we’d love to see what you create! 

Our studio door is currently displaying a stunning Christmas wreath made by Academy tutor, Amanda Randell – Cox for our winter themed ‘Flowers for your Home’ course! Amanda never fails to impress and is always putting a creative twist on classic designs, in this wreath she broke the circular form with diagonal placement which introduces a new dynamic to a traditional symmetrical design.



This year Julie and Tina met with a few of our lovely students to decorate this gorgeous Garden House ready for Christmas! All of the festive designs were made using fresh plants from their wonderful gardens which infused the house with a cozy, country feel. 

We were so excited to draw the beautiful surrounding countryside into the house and capture the essence of this natural moorland area.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our helpers for spreading a bit of Christmas sparkle with us this year!

If you’d like to get involved at our next event then keep an eye on our student forum and social media for updates! We’re always looking to do new and exciting things throughout the year so don’t miss out on a bit of floral fun with our team. 

As this year draws to a close we’d like to say a massive thank you for all of your support throughout these challenging times. 


Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

Love the Academy Team  x
