The people behind The Create Workshop

Elizabeth ran Daisychain Chlidren's wear shop in Woolton Village manufacturing her own exclusive clothing and importing beautiful designer labels.

For the last 15 years she has been teaching in colleges and secondary schools achieving the highest results with her students. She has now decided to engage the community with her passion; creating lovely objects and garments. She will be offering classes in pattern cutting, dressmaking, knitting and crochet as well as teaching decorative techniques such as applique, embroidery, etc.

Orla fell in love with flowers when she studied the art of Japanese flower arranging -Ikebana- while living in Japan in her early twenties. This passion, love and respect for the beauty of flowers lead her to working in top London florists The Conservatory in Richmond, and The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers in the West End.

In 2007 she followed her dream of opening her own flower shop "Sakura Floral Design" in Cork City, Ireland where she was soon honoured to receive 'Businesswoman of the Year' award. She has created wedding flowers in some of the most stunning venues in the UK and Ireland, as well as creating arrangements for private and corporate events, with regular celebrity clients. Over the years, Orla has trained and developed numerous members of staff, given flower demos at business networking events as well as private lessons in people's homes, and is delighted to bring over 12 years of experience and her passion for flowers to her classes at The Create Workshop.

Gemma is taking a break from The Create Workshop as she pursues her exciting career filming 'Find it, Fix it, Flog it' on Channel 4.
