Cut Flower Workshops for lovers of flowers who want to know more. Workshops for Christmas Wreaths, Floral Handties and DIY Weddings. Discover your hidden talent!
Enjoy a relaxing day in the beautiful
setting of Mayfield flower farm, and leave with your own flower arrangement
We run a variety of floral workshops at the flower farm throughout the main flower season. During the 2018 we are running workshops for Garden to Vase and DIY Wedding. Each one is a relaxed workshop with small group numbers giving you time to practise with guidance always on hand to create beautiful arrangements. We use flowers and foliage grown 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 and we respond to the natural shapes and forms that we grow so you will always experience something unique.
