I love passing on my skills and encouraging students to observe and, through practise, find their own language. I like to make it fun and I am happy to share the knowledge and techniques I have developed over many years.
During the pandemic I have been mainly teaching online via Zoom. At present, though, I am working on a book about my work process and will resume teaching by Zoom later in the year. I will announce upcoming classes (as well as news on the book!) here and in future newsletters.
Please get in touch with any enquiries.
What people say…
I am so happy to have found the most brilliant teacher…

I had been long looking for a teacher with whom to further develop my flower-making skills when I found Anne. I was instantly captivated by the exquisite quality of her work. How she lovingly observes each specimen and brightly develops a way to give shape to them to the most minute detail. Moreover, she is an attentive and most welcoming teacher… I relished the days I spent with her and I can’t wait to go back and continue learning.

Observe and make a realistic silk dahlia using traditional flower-making tools together with Anne’s own techniques that she has developed over her long career in millinery.
