Roman Steinhauer from Russia has been working as a florist for over 10 years and trained and works in Russia. His love of Nature inspires all that work with him. He recently assisted at the World Cup and will be able to show you his talented floral design work. Roman’s works are recently shown in the brand new Floos publications.

How it works

Students attending the school will be provided with all the flower and sundries required (you can even take home what you don’t use.) Those fortunate to attend the full course will spend one day with each tutor learning the tutors chosen subject and concept designs. The atmosphere of the workshops are wonderfully relaxed, yet the work will stretch even the most experienced designer.  


Moreton Morrell is a lovely college, based in the heart of Warwickshire countryside, with gardens are full of flowers and foliages ready to be explored, you can even cut materials from the grounds should you wish!  Lunch is provided each day and tea and coffee are on tap. We usually have a sociable evening out altogether for something to eat and drink too. We are confident the EFS will prove to be a special place for learning and relaxation. Accommodation is available at college but there are lots of B&B’s and Hotels around if you require any further information please email for further information.

Good to know

This event was fully subscribed in 2017 and 2015, students had a fantastic time and were enquiring when the next one would be held before the weekend was over.
