What We Do
This Is What We Do…
The Crafty Gardeners offer flower and garden workshops for busy people who want a flower-filled garden and home. Our focus is on hands-on learning so there is always something to take-home, from a beautiful bouquet to a plan for a garden border that will flower for months.
We know the best bomb-proof plants, quick ways to transform a garden, short-cuts to beautiful borders and tips professionals use to create fabulous floral arrangements. We are Crafty because we love crafting floral decorations for the house, but also because we know some cunning tricks for painless garden transformations.
Our courses are interactive and hands-on. It’s the best way to learn, and more fun. The workshops flow from theory to practical as quickly as possible. We keep numbers small, normally not more than 10 students, so everyone receives individual attention.
We think fresh air and natural surroundings support learning, so we are delighted to run our workshop in the inspiring countryside venues of Bowood House in Wiltshire, Westonbirt Arboretum in Gloucestershire and The Walled Garden at Mells in Somerset. They are all easy to reach from Bristol or Bath.
You can pick and mix courses to suit your needs and timescale. Start the year by planning a garden re-design on our Creative Garden Plans workshop, then celebrate summer with a joyful morning spent making a beautiful bouquet and finally end the year by making a Christmas wreath to decorate your front door.

Our garden workshops reveal the tips, techniques and short-cuts you need to transform your garden into a delightful, relaxing haven. We cover garden layout planning, garden planting planning and our top failsafe plants to take the worry out of choosing the right plants.
Combining all these courses will give you the skills and knowledge to completely overhaul your garden.
Our flower arranging workshops celebrate every season with spring time posies, scented summer bouquets, autumnal arrangements and, of course, Christmas wreaths to adorn your homes. Take your pick! Whatever you choose you are bound to come home with a floral masterpiece.
