Do you love flowers but wish you could display them better? At our flower arranging workshops I’ll teach you simple florist techniques so you’ll take home a beautiful flower arrangement to be proud of. Learn how to make a stunning display in a vase or a hand-tied bouquet for the centre of a table or wrapped to make the perfect gift. And what better way to celebrate Christmas than making your own stylish festive wreath? Teaching takes place in small groups of fewer than 10 people, first by demonstration and then through hands-on practise.
I source all British grown material, picked either from my own allotment or bought from a local flower farmer so you'll be using the best flowers and foliage each season has to offer. Plus I am delighted to offer a NEW workshop for 2022 to celebrate British Flower week. Come and immerse yourself in flowers with our Pick Your Own flowers with vase arrangement workshop at Floral Acre Flower farm, where you'll have the pick of the crop and create something truly unique.
Workshops run throughout the year in a selection of inspiring venues, all of which you can enjoy after your workshop finishes at no extra cost. Bowood House in Wiltshire is a Grade 1 listed Georgian country house featuring interiors by Robert Adams and a garden designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. Westonbirt Arboretum in Gloucestershire is one of the most diverse and beautiful botanical collections in the world. And there’s also the Walled Garden at Mells – a hidden gem in this pretty Somerset village with many good walks nearby.
I look forward to my birthday because it’s a great excuse for treating myself. I often think we don’t...
