Workshops

At Young Blooms, we love to nurture your creativity. Our workshops give you the ideal opportunity to be inspired and to learn floristry and flower arranging skills. You will experience expert tuition from our renowned professional florist, Grace Farrimond, who will give you hands-on teaching while revealing some of the hidden tricks of the trade!

Workshops take place at the idyllic setting of Hartley Farm, near Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire, and many workshops are in our very own flower-growing garden, the Not So Secret Garden. It is the perfect, peaceful environment to learn and be inspired. Many workshops also give you the unique opportunity to pick your very own seasonal British-grown flowers for our cutting garden for you to use in your arrangement.

Sessions take place throughout the year and are suitable for all ages, skills and abilities. They are ideal for someone interested in floristry as a career, for team-building, hen days, brides-to-be, or anyone who wants a fantastic experience and to learn new skills.

All materials are provided and – of course – you can take home your finished creations to enjoy. Coffee, cake and refreshments are included and we are happy to arrange private workshops at a venue of your choice, or one-to-one tuition.

Upcoming workshops are listed below, but places are limited. To reserve your place, either this online booking page, telephoning 01225 850271, email info@youngblooms.co.uk, or by visiting us at Hartley Farm! If you have any questions or specific requirements – please get in touch.
