A BIT ABOUT ME
I am Julia, the face behind Julia Lynn Floral Design. I am a British florist who is studio based in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire on the North Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire borders covering these areas and the surrounding counties. Floristry was a career change for me but one that I absolutely love.
Having trained at The Sussex Flower School and following redundancy from a job I did for over 10 years I decided to follow my lifelong flower passion and combine the knowledge, skills and experience I gained from working for Central Government, for three local authorities, the NHS, Early Years Settings, Local Authority schools and Independent schools into my self-employment as a florist and provider of the 'Power of the Flower' floral workshops.
Floristry is not such a change of career but more of a returning to 'my roots' and following not only my passion for being outdoors and flowers but following the life long passion of my parents. My father ran a thriving garden landscaping business all of his life and for many years as a family, we lived on a smallholding which was a garden centre and farm shop too. I spent many hours with my parents at the wholesalers and working in the garden centre/farm shop, while also tending to the many animals; I adored my horses!
I love to teach; I am always being told by family, friends and past work colleagues that I am a 'people person' that is sincere, nurturing, shows empathy, listens and that I am an enabler who wants to help others develop and achieve. I would love to create bespoke floral/foliage designs for you or meet you at one of our workshops.
I hold an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Certificate for children and adults.
I also have an Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate and a Paediatric First Aid Certificate.
