Scottish Flower School workshops for lovers of flowers who want to know more.
Discover your hidden talent!
Enjoy a relaxing day in the beautiful
setting of Mayfield flower farm
We run a variety of workshops at the flower farm throughout the main flower season. This year we are running four types: Garden to Vase, DIY wedding, Pedestal Arrangements and Floral Crowns. Each one is a relaxed workshop with small group numbers to enable you time to practise with guidance always on hand to create beautiful arrangements. We use flowers and foliage grown here at Mayfield Flowers cutting gardens and on the Garden to Vase course you will cut some yourself. Other courses start with buckets of flowers freshly picked for you. Our style is natural and often a little on the wild side. We respond to the natural shapes and forms that we grow here so there will be no uniformity!
