Flower workshops and courses that could change your world!
Based in Fareham.
Welcome to Driftwood & Daisies Flower School
Hello my name is Jo Parker and I am the proprietor of Driftwood and Daisies Flower School, an independent business based in Hill Head, Fareham. Welcome to my website!
I love teaching floristry and flower arranging and have been doing so since 2001. It is one of the most rewarding things I do in my flowery world and believe it is a skill that my students will find very rewarding and get repeat pleasure from. Who doesn't like receiving flowers and when you've made the design yourself the pleasure and rewards are priceless! If you would like to learn some basic flower arranging skills then why not click on 'book a workshop' to see if there is something you fancy having a go at.
I look forward to welcoming you soon.

Driftwood and Daisies has now become a Flower School only. Apologies, but I no longer offer funeral flowers and gift bouquets. I hope this news does not disappoint but thank you for visiting my website.

I honestly cannot recommend Jo’s workshops enough. As a complete novice with a passion for ‘dabbling’ with flowers (but absolutely no skill or knowledge!) I signed up for Driftwood & Daisy’s wedding flower workshop. Jo’s coaching skills, patience & encouragement enabled me to produce arrangements, button holes & best of all a bridal bouquet - beyond all my expectations. So much so - I had the confidence (& new found skills) to do my own daughter’s wedding flowers last year!
From this 1 workshop I have gone on to complete the introduction to floristry course along with Christmas wreath workshops in 2022 & 2023. Am looking forward to doing some more in 2024.
Not only do these workshops give you the confidence & skill to achieve your very own ‘work of art’ under the skilful direction of Jo, you also get a well deserved & undisturbed opportunity for mindfulness & ‘me’ time. If anyone is undecided about whether to do any one of the workshops - just go for it! You will not be disappointed “
Jo is a gifted and inspirational teacher who brings out the best in her pupils. It doesn't matter at what level you are working, everyone leaves with the feeling they have achieved - no mean feat as at our workshops there is a wide range of experience from a qualified florist to more or less beginners. I would warmly recommend a Driftwood and Daisies' workshop to any of my friends because I know they would have a very enjoyable experience.

Fantastic day of floristry today with Joanna. Loved every second of it and can't wait to practice my new skills and do more workshops. Thanks for being such a friendly, informative, patient and fun teacher x Yvonne
