Cut Flower Workshops for flower lovers.
Workshops for Christmas Wreaths, Bouquets and DIY Weddings. Discover your hidden talent!
Enjoy a relaxing day in the beautiful
setting of Mayfield flower farm, and leave with your fill of flowers
We run a variety of floral workshops at the flower farm throughout the main flower season. 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. 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.
Gift vouchers available for all workshops – Why not treat someone to a wonderful day out? Either select and book a date and email us to let us know you would like a gift voucher sent, or buy gift vouchers for the recipient to choose the date.
If you are looking for a practical gift for a flower gardener look no further than our gift box of snips and notebook, perfect to go along with a gift voucher.
Create your own beautiful Christmas wreath
Get into the Christmas spirit by creating your own wreath that will last right through the festive period. We will demonstrate the techniques and guide you through the creation of a wonderful wreath using evergreens with detail of pinecones, seedpods, berries and various natural and seasonal materials from our Mayfield cutting gardens. In this small group setting, you will receive a detailed explanation to ensure that you take home a beautiful wreath to decorate your home and leave with inspiration for future projects.
