High Summer at Bowood House
This July we are holding our first ever workshop at Bowood House in Wiltshire on July 19th. This stunning Capability Brown designed landscape is a real treat and our workshop includes an exclusive guided tour of the private Walled Garden. The July flower borders at Bowood are spectacular which makes the subject of our first workshop, Planning Planting, perfect timing. Don't miss it!
We send out occasional newsletters with hints, tips and special offers. If you would like to get on our mailing list, just send us your email on the Contact Us page and you won't miss out.
Hello. We are the Crafty Gardeners, and we run Floral Craft and Garden Design Workshops.
Do you love flowers? Would you like a house full of posies all year round, or a garden that always looks lovely when you look out the window?
We run courses that help you learn the tips, techniques and short-cuts to transform your garden into a beautiful outdoor space. And workshops that teach you how to craft posies, garlands and wreaths from the garden, the hedgerow or even the supermarket to adorn your house.
We believe nature is the best teacher. Our workshops work with seasonal flowers, stems and foliage so that you can bring some natural beauty into your home. Our garden courses work with nature, to keep the hard work to a minimum and the enjoyment to a maximum..
Enjoy a whole year of flowers by taking our seasonally inspired floral workshops. Spring posies, summer crowns, autumn garlands and Christmas wreaths are all on offer. You can also combine our garden courses to learn the essential skills and knowledge needed to completely overhaul your garden. The choice is yours.
Our courses take place at carefully chosen country venues from the outskirts of Bath and Bristol to the hinterland of Somerset and Wiltshire. We restrict numbers, to make sure every students receives individual attention, and there is always plenty of cake. (Research shows that learning is more effective when cake is supplied!)
Crafty Gardeners’ workshops are hands-on and practical. They make a perfect gift, either for yourself or a loved one.
