Flower workshops 2021

Garden to Vase

Sunday 20th June, Tuesday 3rd Aug, Friday 20th Aug and Sun 5th September (10-1pm) £75

Ever dreamt of being let loose in a garden full of flowers with a pair of scissors? Now’s your chance to experience just that. The morning starts with a tour of the cut flower garden, and hints and tips for cutting and conditioning flowers. You then get the chance to wander around the garden and pick any of the flowers, herbs and foliage that catch your eye. Next, we enjoy coffee and cake and while the flowers are conditioning,  you learn how to make and wrap a hand-tied bouquet to fit the vase provided. The flowers and vase are yours to take home at the end of the workshop.  Social distancing and other rules will be followed in accordance with latest government guidelines.

The important bit

All workshops are suitable for absolute beginners and most take place under the cover of a large gazebo or in a spacious, light and airy room in my Cotswolds home in Gloucestershire, with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside.

Workshop places are limited to small groups (currently 5 ). The price includes refreshments, flowers and all materials. Most sessions include a tour of the cutting garden and hints and tips for growing your own cut flowers.  (If you’re travelling from further afield and looking for Cotswolds accommodation, talk to me about my Airbnb rooms)

Social distancing and other rules will be followed in accordance with latest government guidelines.

“Your course was fabulous. You gave us all a warm welcome, made sure everyone was introduced, and chatting over tea and cake was a lovely relaxing way to put everyone at ease. The flowers provided were not only beautiful and varied but ample.”
