Our workshops, whether online or in person here at Common Farm Flowers, are the perfect way to spend time and make for a lovely treat for yourself or an ideal gift for someone else.
Running throughout the year, we love to share our experience and tips on various fabulous subjects! Here’s our current list of what’s on offer. Just click on each link below to find out more.
If you do book a workshop via our website please be aware of a slight quirk in that the website will force you to choose a delivery date. This is because the website is very much set up for taking orders for bouquets. So just choose any delivery date - and then you'll be able to proceed with your booking. If you’ve got any questions please contact us.

Days Out At Common Farm Flowers
All our workshops are effectively fabulous days out at Common Farm Flowers! But here are a couple more that didn't quite fit into any of the categories above!
All our workshops are great fun and are held at Common Farm Flowers (unless it's an online workshop). We are just two hours from London and easy to find just off the A303, nestling in the glorious Somerset countryside between fashionable Bruton and Wincanton. Nearby train stations include Gillingham (in Dorset) and Castle Cary.
Common Farm Flowers also offers Garden Tours at different times of the year. The tours are open to various groups, including (but not exclusively) horticultural societies, floristry groups, W.I. and so on. You can contact us to organise a tour for your group or join one of our mixed tours instead. Find out more here.
Stay A While
If you want to turn coming to one of our workshops into a short break, we have plenty of cheerful B&Bs nearby and interesting things to see and do right on ourdoorstep, including the Hauser and Wirth art gallery just a couple of minutes drive down the road!
