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.
Due to the current Covid-19 situation, I am now mainly teaching online via Zoom. Details of workshops are posted below. When you book, you will receive a Zoom link in your confirmation email; you should also receive the link in an email invitation from Zoom.
Please get in touch with any enquiries and I am happy to discuss any projects you may have in mind.

What people say…
I am so happy to have found the most brilliant teacher…
Maya Laemmli, Switzerland
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.
