Spend the morning cutting flowers from the three and a half acres of cut flowers at Common Farm Flowers and then spend the afternoon learning to make hand-tied bouquets and posies.
People often find they are good at growing flowers, but are nervous of cutting and arranging them, fearing that cutting the flowers will leave their garden looking shorn, and the flowers they cut will flop quickly.
Georgie Newbery will help you become a confident flower cutter, with all sorts of clever cutting and conditioning information which will help your garden flowers last longer.
And the bouquet you make and take home will inspire you to cut and arrange flowers from your garden all year round for years to come.
The workshop takes place between 10am-3pm at Common Farm, BA9 8HN.
The cost includes lunch at a local farm shop, so please advise us of any food allergies / intolerances at the time of booking. Please bring your own drinks (water / hot drinks flasks etc) and any mid morning / afternoon snacks you might like.
As a result of current coronavirus restrictions (October 2020) there will be a maximum of 5 people on the workshop.
The cost of the workshop includes all materials you will need to use on the day.
Please note that workshops at Common Farm Flowers are taking place outside, under cover of our sail and 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.
Most of our flowers and foliage are grown on our flower farm in Somerset. During some of the winter months we order flowers from our flower farming friends in other parts of the country. We only ever use British grown flowers. Our flowers are cut from the farm fresh each morning, before being arranged and sent for next day delivery.
Because our flowers are picked fresh each day, each of our bouquets is totally unique. Although we can't guarantee a particular flower or colour scheme in your bouquet please let us know if you have any particular requests and we will do our best to meet them. We promise that your bouquet will be fresh and beautiful.
