‘Nature isn’t just beautiful. Even in small doses it changes the way we feel.’
Through our wellbeing workshops, we connect you with nature. We teach you simple mindfulness techniques to encourage you to slow down while you explore your creativity by making your own seasonal floral arrangement. Our aim is for you to leave feeling calm and grounded.
Who are we?
Cherry Tree Way is a floral design studio, founded by Nikki Rodgers, whose background in styling and love for the natural world led her to train in floral design and the Japanese art of ikebana. Through the study of ikebana she found a deeper appreciation for the seasons, which inspired the vision for the studio.
Nature is a continuous source of inspiration to us, each season brings with it a new inspiration which we celebrate at our workshops and in our arrangements. We give consideration to how each stem exists in its natural environment, which in turn dictates our creative process.
We value a life lived in close connection to nature and the positive effect this can have on our physical and mental wellbeing.
What is mindfulness?
To be mindful is to simply be aware of your own experience in the present moment, by focusing your attention on a simple activity which allows the mind to rest. Mindfulness techniques are tools which can be used at any time to help us feel more calm and in control.
Mindful living has helped to restore balance in our lives. Practising mindfulness in nature is a remedy for when we are feeling stressed. Spending time with nature is known to reduce tension, quieten the mind and improve concentration.
Our workshops teach you simple mindfulness techniques to focus your attention and quieten your mind, as you enjoy creating your own seasonal arrangement.
We encourage you to use more than just your eyes as you create. We will ask you to consider details like the scent of the flowers, the texture of the materials and the taste of the tea you sip. We will guide you in constructing a simple seasonal design, inspired by nature, in our signature style.
We choose locations that take us away from the hustle and bustle of the city – spaces that support us in disconnecting from our busy minds, as we connect with the beauty of nature in the present moment.
This is your time to truly relax with nature at your side.
