Founded by Birmingham-based designers Daniel Alcorn and Luke Tonge in 2017, the Birmingham Design Festival has given some much needed recognition to the design hub of the West Midlands. Offering a packed programme of events and exhibitions, the festival is back with a bang for 2023, and set to get you inspired with its many attractions and workshops held by Birmingham-based creatives. From sensory food workshops to brand masterclasses, this is one not to be missed for creative minds, whether you're based in the Midlands or not.

On the 24th June, you can head to their Stamford-based studio to learn how to create your very own bohemian inspired dried flower arrangement using a selection of neutral and textured flowers and grasses - perfect for your party to take away to decorate their homes, or you could even use them to supply the floral arrangements for your wedding reception.
