Following our success with evening workshops in Hackney we have decided to open a school during the summer in our favourite part of Italy in the beautiful walled city of Lucca in Tuscany.




Following the success of our London Flower School evening workshops in Hackney and our classes in Beijing, we decided to create Rebel Rebel Italia and open a Summer Flower School in our favourite part of Italy, Tuscany, far from the madding crowds in the mountains near Barga and just a winding single track train ride from the beautiful medieval walled city of Lucca.


After the sell-out success of our Summer Flower School we are launching our latest course and teaming up with Dalston superstar bakers The Dusty Knuckle bakery, to add some flour to our flower power.

This August, you can spend a delicious week with us all at the glorious 16th-century Tuscan Villa Buonvisi, in the soft rolling countryside outside the medieval walled city of Lucca. For five full days we will be teaching you practical skills and exploring design ideas in the Rebel style of floristry: the super-sized Bouquet on Legs, extravagant flower crowns, large installations and table settings for the fabulous final feast. We will take a trip into the mountains near Barga, to Rebel Rebel’s own house and cutting garden to forage in the woods and meet some of the people who help create the Rebel experience in Italy. 

The Dusty Knuckle will share their expertise with you and hone your skills baking your own bread, pizzas and pastries, using the villa’s wood-fired ovens. They supply some of London’s most renowned chefs with their exceptionally tasty bread and pastries and their expanding café has developed a near-on cult following for its deliciously punchy food and innovative sandwiches.

When you aren’t embracing your new skills you will be admiring and enjoying your works of art, eating and drinking with us in and around the villa, its vineyard and olive groves providing the perfect setting; and the historic centre of Lucca is just a stone’s throw away, so your evenings could be spent walking or cycling along the medieval outer city wall or strolling through the atmospheric narrow streets, exploring the shops, churches, towers, museums, cafes, bars and restaurants that can be found around every corner.
