Marquees provide the ultimate blank canvas for floral installations. We’re thrilled to be able to hold a two-day marquee decoration extravaganza in collaboration with award winning marquee company Good Intents . This market-leading workshop will be held in the glorious surroundings of Flanesford Priory, in the heart of the Wye Valley.
Suitable for all skill sets, this course will go in to serious detail on the practicalities as well as the pretty. You’ll have the benefit of the Good Intents team’s expert advice on mechanics and good working practice including health and safety weight limits, pulley systems and loads more besides, plus Sabine’s creative spark and floristry flair to help you take your marquee designs to the next level.
What To Expect?
Arrive at Flanesford and get to know each other, before diving right in with the mechanics and possibilities that marquees can offer. This expert session will be led by the team from Good Intents. Prepare to get hand cramp from the amount of notes you’ll be scribbling!
We’ll spend the rest of the day decorating (with a break for a well-earned and delicious lunch). Sabine will talk you through a series of foam free designs, both suspended and free-standing, but all on a suitably spectacular scale.
After a good night’s sleep, we’ll be back in our beautifully flowered marquee to look at table design, focusing on elevated and low range concepts and arrangements. As well as the florals, we’ll be looking at the marquee décor on a wider scale, to make sure you’re able to fully transform the spaces you’re working in. We’ll be discussing layouts, linens, lighting, prop styling and more, before moving on to our final styling set up and photoshoot.

“I love attending courses, I try and go on 3 or 4 a year, but yours really are the best I’ve been on so far. So inspiring which is mainly down to your teaching style and creativity”. Vic Clarke | Foxgloves and Glory
