Following our success with our London Workshops and our trips to Beijing where we teach a week long course at Cohim Flower school, Rebel Rebel are expanding.
In June 2017 we launch the Rebel Rebel flower school in Italy, in a beautiful, off-the-radar corner of Tuscany: the Garfagnana. Four-day holiday courses will be run out of a small hamlet in Barga – a very beautiful medieval hillside town - using flowers we grow on our land, as well as those we forage (we like to call it floraging) in the local forest. We have chosen Barga, because it is very dear to our hearts, Athena and her family have been visiting the area for over 20 years and we know what a hidden gem it is.
It will not be a residential course, as we think students will prefer to stay nearby in a variety of accommodation, but the price will include all materials, lunch every day, and some evening events. Rebel Rebel Italia will be joyful and fun, but also brimming with detail and knowledge. We want our students to find the way into their own floral style with our expert help. Plus pizza. And aperitivi.
Getting To Rebel Rebel Italia
The nearest airport is Pisa International. Ryanair, Easyjet and British Airways all fly there from London. It is just over an hours drive from the airport to Barga. Trains run from Pisa Centrale to Barga daily. Our Rebels are knowledgeable on the local area and are on hand for any travel info and are happy to help you during your stay.
