Workshops

Floral design workshops are a great way to learn a new skill that you can use again and again, any time flowers come into your life. Working with the unique and beautiful blooms from the farm can deepen your appreciation for flowers, design, color, and the natural world.

The full schedule of on-farm workshops will be released in June. These workshops will take place on the flower farm, and include a full tour of the field where the flowers are growing. Workshops will include:

Beginner workshops
These classes are accessible for those who want to learn the basics of floral design, from how to prepare flowers for use, to the design techniques used to build a floral arrangement. Participants will get to pick out the flowers they want to use, and will learn the best ways to arrange the types of flowers that are easily accessed at grocery stores and markets.

Masterclass workshops
These classes are geared toward those who have taken a beginner workshop, or who have experience working with flowers or with floral design. Participants will be taken on a foraging expedition for greenery, and will cut their own flowers from the field. They will learn how to create an artistic compote arrangement using a footed vase, and a flower frog, utilizing more advanced mechanics and design techniques.
