Hurray for summer!
June is when the summer flowers start bursting out all over the garden. Bring the garden inside by arranging your own garden blossoms in a vase. Learn how to make the most of your garden bounty on our Summer Posy Workshop this month. Do you want to plan a flower border for more summer colour? Book our Planning Planting course. Or learn how to make the most of your garden space on our Creative Plans workshop.

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.
