Come and join Maggie Haynes at our organic smallholding at Tuppenny Barn, for a morning of seasonal cut flowers, homemade refreshments and an insight into creating a hand held bouquet.
You’ll begin the workshop by picking beautiful hand grown flowers from the various flower cutting patches on site, then bring them inside to condition them.
After coffee break Maggie will show you how to put together a hand held bouquet and then encourage you to make your own with the flowers you have picked.
At the end of the workshop you will leave with a gorgeous hand held bouquet, having learnt the basic skills on how to put together future bouquets.
