Enjoy the beautiful location of Bowood for our Autumn posy making workshop.Combined with lunch and a private tour of the walled garden this is an absolute treat for anyone who loves flowers and gardens. Only booked tours are given access to Lord and Lady Lansdowne’s private walled gardens. Bowood is a grade 1 listed Georgian country house with interiors by Robert Adam and a garden designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.
Spend a relaxing morning in the Gardeners Bothy learning how to make your own beautiful hand tied posy. we will be using gorgeous autumnal flowers plus seasonal delights. You will learn our top tips for the spiral technique, widely used by professional florists but straightforward to master. This technique keeps your flowers in place when they are dropped into a vase. We also share a simple and quick way to wrap your bouquet so that it becomes the perfect gift. I promise you will never be stuck for present ideas after this workshop or you could make this workshop into a present with one of our gift vouchers.
I am delighted to announce that our 2021 programme of workshops is now released, and were were featured in The weekend Telegraph's piece titled The best horticultural and floral design schools in the UK It's a great endorsement and I know Michelle would have been very proud.
I am taking over Michelle's courses for now, and in these worrying times I am reminded of her passionate belief that gardens and nature provide great support and are an asset we should cherish.

I had a truly wonderful morning, with six other lovely ladies who all had their own reasons for being on the workshop. Louise was a great tutor and showed us how to make a posy using a spiral technique. Then it was our turn to try the technique before selecting the flowers for our posy to take home. The variety and wonderful perfumed smells of the flowers was just heady. I will certainly be booking onto another and recommend the crafty gardeners workshops for anyone who just loves flowers.
