If you love the idea of creating gorgeous designs from garden flowers then you will enjoy our flower school. We focus where we can on British Grown flowers and love to use old fashioned flowers like delphiniums and larkspur and wild foraged twigs and seedheads. Think natural nostalgia for the modern home and you won’t go far wrong. Our workshops and courses are inspirational, practical and fun. They are for individuals looking to develop their skill or wake up the artist inside. Students will learn how to create their own arrangements and understand how to choose and condition blooms. The classes are suitable for all ages and all skill level including complete beginner.

Here are a selection of lovely comments from some of our flower-school students;

“The surroundings were lovely. [They had] A lovely variety of flowers for posies.”

“[The thing I enjoyed most this morning was] The company, the beautiful fresh flowers and learning new skills.”

“It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Absolutely perfect, I was not sure what I was expecting but the minute we walked in it was super.”

“I really enjoyed using all of the flowers and where the workshop was held. I enjoyed learning how to spiral flowers and arranging them into a posy.”

Workshops take place right here at Lower Blakemere Farm, in Blakemere (Halfway between Hereford and Hay-on-wye), Herefordshire. We have ample parking and will provide tea and cake. We run courses from our stable building which has been lovingly converted into a classroom/ floristry. You can also purchase flower directly from us after the course as well as browse a few of our products.
