Autumn Flower Arranging Workshop with guided tour of Bowood’s Private Walled Garden

This Deluxe workshop is the perfect treat for anyone who loves flowers and gardens. Combining our bouquet making workshop with an exclusive guided tour of Lord and Lady Lansdowne’s private walled garden it’s sure to be a day to remember.

We begin by spending a relaxing morning learning an easy to master florist technique to make your own beautiful hand tied bouquet. You’ll be using the best flowers and foliage Autumn has to offer and all British grown either picked from my own allotment or bought from a local flower farmer. After a delicious lunch we spend a leisurely afternoon touring the private walled garden at Bowood. Your exclusive guide will tell you all about the Colefax and Fowler inspired double herbaceous borders, the sunken garden and cutting garden just to mention some of the wonderful parts of this 4 acre garden.  All in all a perfect day out.

The Crafty Gardeners were delighted to be featured in The Telegraph's - Best Horticultural and Floral Design schools in the UK  for the South West.

Our workshops have proved really popular as birthday or Christmas presents. So to make it even easier to give someone The Crafty gardeners experience we now offer Gift vouchers.

WHAT’S INCLUDED: Tea/ coffee and cake, all materials and equipment to make and gift wrap your beautiful floral posy. Delicious 1 course lunch followed by your own guided tour of Private walled garden.

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.
