AUTUMNAL FLOWER ARRANGEMENT
SUNDAY 8TH OCTOBER, 10AM

This is going to be something really fun and a bit different - bring along a bunch of supermarket flowers and we'll teach you how to jazz them up and make a really impressive bouquet or arrangement. We'll go on a forage around the farm and hedgerows for beautiful blooms, foliage and texture and then head back to the studio to make a beautiful seasonal handtied bouquet. Feel free to bring a container to arrange in if you wish - we'll provide foam and wire and teach you how!

MULCHING AND GROUND PREPARATION
SUNDAY 12TH NOVEMBER, 10AM

The perfect workshop for the keen gardener who wants to learn how to get the most out of their soil, whether it's for flowers, vegetables or shrubs. Ant will give you all the details about how to develop your soil health, the pros and cons of different digging techniques and how to supplement it to give ideal growing conditions. We will also cover the different types of mulching and how to do it - please bring wellies as we'll be heading into the perennial garden to have a go! 

***
All workshops cost £30 and last for approximately 3 hours. Tea and cake is included so please let us know any dietary requirements.
Please bring wellies, notebook and pen, and for the autumnal floral arrangement, a mixed bunch of supermarket flowers.

CHRISTMAS WREATHS 

Join us for a wonderful wreath making session in the Radley Cross garden studio. After selling out last year we've added an extra date and look forward to welcoming you to the brand new studio filled with an enormous selection of beautiful natural materials grown on the farm, plus Penny's yummy mince pies and Christmas carols. Sarah will teach you how to make a gorgeous door wreath with seasonal foliage, then pick your decorations to trim your wreath and finish with a beautiful bow. 

SUNDAY 10TH DECEMBER, 2PM
WEDNESDAY 13TH DECEMBER, 10AM - FULLY BOOKED
MONDAY 18TH DECEMBER, 2PM

Wreath workshops cost £30 and last for approximately 3 hours. Please let us know any dietary requirements and bring and apron and some secateurs if you have them. 

These workshops sold out very quickly last year so book early to avoid disappointment. Each session can fit 6 people, if you have a large group get in touch and we can book you in on another date all together!

Private Tuition

If you would like to learn something specific, would like to come with a group of friends or would prefer one on one tuition then why not book a private session. Previous private tuition sessions have included Christmas wreaths, DIY weddings and creating pedestal arrangements but can be arranged for anything you like.

The Hand-tied bouquet workshop is especially popular - a forage for foliage, learn to make a classic hand-tied and then how to display as a centrepiece, present as a bridal bouquet and wrap for giving as a gift. Tea, cake and beautiful photos are all included!


Prices depend on subject matter and depth and will be confirmed in advance.

Hen Parties

Crafty hen parties are becoming increasingly popular and we offer really easy and fun floral workshops for groups of any size. Flower crowns, make your own bouquet and seasonal designs are all in demand. Prices depend on design and number of people and workshops can happen all over the South West.
