About the Course
Celebrate British Flower Week with us and enjoy a relaxing afternoon surrounded by natural beauty and a gorgeous range of locally grown flowers.
You will be welcomed to the Crystal room with a display and discussion of seasonal flowers available and a given a demonstration of what you will create later in the afternoon.
Armed with your knowledge and excitement to choose your ingredients you will then follow a trail around the beautiful grounds, following a flower map to ‘pick’ your favourite flowers from buckets placed around the gardens. This will take you around the formal sunken garden, tranquil labyrinth and some of the more unusual features of unusual swings hidden amongst stately trees and mystical giant crystals in curious places.
After delicious cakes and refreshments you will then be shown how to design and make a hand tied bouquet that would make a beautiful vase arrangement, and then you get to have a go!
To end the day there will also be a demonstration of a large natural urn arrangement on the labyrinth.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Included in the workshop are refreshments and cakes, all tools and materials needed, and you will also get to take home a beautiful arrangement that you made and will be proud of.
You don’t need any experience just an appreciation of flowers and willingness to learn news skills.
The 5 acres of beautiful grounds are also available for you to wander around beforehand and you would be welcome to bring a picnic to have on the formal lawn, sunken gardens or while dipping your legs in the outdoor swimming pool!
I’ve attended a few of Catherine’s courses and they are absolutely wonderful. Whether you’re an expert or never done anything like this before, somehow Catherine manages to set the pace perfectly so everyone leaves with a stunning finished piece and having learnt an amazing new skill! I’ve always gone with a group of friends or family but if you just fancy a day out meeting new people, everyone is so friendly you’ll have an amazing time. Such a calm and creatively inspiring vibe - I’d highly recommend any of Catherine’s courses as a fabulous day/ night out learning a new skill with wonderful people!

Catherine of Elworthy Flowers runs fantastic workshops, I highly recommend her! The workshops I attended were extremely well organised with a real abundance of amazing flowers and foliage to create something special and unique. She provides the right balance of detailed guidance whilst also allowing you to use your own creative flair.
Her workshops are great for you to attend by yourself, or bring a friend or relative as a gift. It's a wonderful experience to enjoy together with someone special.

I absolutely love Catherine’s workshops and have been to several. They are well organised, really fun and you get to take home something beautiful that you have made yourself! I’m always amazed by what I can make with the right guidance on these workshops. The choice of flowers/foliage and accessories is impressive so there is always something for everybody. I would definitely recommend these workshops, once you have been to one, you will be hooked!
