Kate's Blooms

The floristry journey so far.....

After training in biochemistry at the University of Oxford, then starting a PHD on bacteria....... I realised life in the laboratory was really not for me! While I tried to work out my direction I was lucky enough to land a job in Fabulous Flowers in Oxford, where I spent a wonderful year working hard, and training with Matthew and Gary the Fabulous owners. I caught the floristy bug, and after relocating to USA I worked for Bow Street Flowers in Somerville, MA, where I learnt a huge amount, was totally immersed into the world of floristry, and was mentored wonderfully by Shelley the owner. I also had the opportunity to study further with a wide range of courses, including with Sarah from SAIPUA. 

in 2012, I felt the time was right, so Kate's Blooms was established.  Another relocation to France and two children later, here I am!
