Join Georgie for one, two or three days of fun and learning about creating with flowers cut fresh from the garden. Using exclusively eco skills this no-floral foam course will take you through the details of cutting, conditioning, and arranging, from tiny posies to large floral installations.
The focus of this day - Day One - is very much about smaller arrangements - think hand tied bouquets, brides’s bouquets, bridesmaids posies, buttonholes, floral crowns. After an introduction with Georgie you will spend the morning in the garden cutting flowers for the day. Learn the best way to cut and condition your flowers and foliage, and learn how to plan your garden so that you can have great material for cutting throughout the season. Georgie will then demo some arranging techniques and you will spend the afternoon making posies, buttonholes, a bride’s bouquet, a flower crown…
This one (or two or three day) workshop will suit people just wanting to have fun with flowers as well as people with more experience who want to hone their eco-floristry and styling skills. There will be plenty of opportunity to photograph the work as we create it, and Georgie has a wealth of props and vases in her studio, all of which can be used opportunistically.
Limited spaces available - there will be a maximum of 10 people on the workshop.
The cost of the workshop includes all materials you will need to use on the day. All creations not made in vessels belonging to Common Farm can be taken home by the students at the end of each day. (You may wish to bring buckets or vases to transport your arrangements home in!)
The workshop takes place between 10am-3pm at Common Farm, BA9 8HN.
The cost also includes lunch at a local farm shop, so please advise us of any food allergies / intolerances at the time of booking. Please bring any mid morning / afternoon snacks you might like.
Please note that workshops at Common Farm Flowers take place in our studio barn, as well as out on the farm (where there is no cover!) Please wear clothes suitable for the weather (layers, waterproof clothes) and bring shoes / boots that are designed to walk on rough grassy paths. Even on a sunny day, flip flops and sandals aren't advised and we suggest long trousers where possible, due to the risk of ticks. A sun hat and sun protection are also advised, as we can't always stand in the shade.
We will be in touch a few days before the workshop with your joining instructions. If you’ve not received this email 48 hours beforehand please email email@example.com but do please first check your junk / spam items and make sure you are checking the inbox of the email address you used to book your place.
