About Pip Bensley Flowers
International judge and teacher. Pip founder of Pip Bensley Flowers has won three Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medals and is now a judging panel chairman for exhibits both in the Great Pavilion and in the Floral Design Studio. Recently on the jury of the World Flower Art Competition in Beijing.
Flowers are the most entrancing things, their infinite variety, seasonality and their fleeting nature make them so special. The way they express every feeling is such a wonderful thing that we can't imagine a house without them. They are our instant choice when we want to show someone that we care.
With Pip's background in horticulture she can bring a special twist to flowers with a real understanding of plants and flowers and a world of contacts so that she can source the very best flowers from all around the world but also from every corner of Britain.
Three Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Gold Medals, recognised the world over, are proof that Pip can work at the highest level and produce really special work.
Pip lives and works in Southampton, a city which is vibrant and ever changing, and she uses the area as inspiration for her work sourcing flowers from local growers to capture that rustic country look while combining that with picking the best of the newest trends from London and New York.
As a teacher Pip still goes to workshops to keep her skills at their peak and so she understands how important it is to feel comfortable while learning, it should be engaging, fun and you should leave a class feeling you really have learnt something useful and inspiring.
Most importantly our work is about you and what you want from your flowers. You can work directly with Pip to craft a special course, create a bespoke design or choose from her designer flowers or scheduled workshops on this website. We are approachable and easy to work with combined with being total professionals.
