Workshops

Have you always wanted to try your hand at flower arranging? Our flower design workshops are aimed at a basic level of flower arranging. We want it to be a fun, relaxed environment that you can enjoy, while in the process, creating a beautiful flower arrangement to take home with you.

The price of the workshop includes all materials – unless otherwise noted. All workshop participants will receive an information packet on flower and/or plant care & handling as well as flower arranging basics.

Please feel free to call and schedule a private workshop for eight or more children or adults. We can customize your workshop to any type of flower arranging, terrarium planting or garden care that you are interested in learning.

Join us on September 28th for a wonderful day full of flowers with one of our favorite local flower farms.

This is an amazing opportunity to learn all about growing and harvesting in Virginia. The first portion of the day will be spent touring Wind Haven’s incredible flower farm. One of our skilled floral designers will then teach the basics of floral care and floral design techniques using the fresh cut blooms and foliage. Each participant will leave with the knowledge of floral design to use again and again as well as their very own arrangement to take home and enjoy.

Autumn is the best season for flowers, apple cider and enjoying cooler weather here in Virginia. Grab your friends and join us for a wonderful evening at Blue Bee Cider- full of flowers and craft cider.

In this hands on workshop, we will draw our inspiration from the autumn hues of the changing leaves and examine how important color theory is in the art of floral design. Color is the best part of flowers and nature has given us quite a palette to be inspired by. Fall tones can be so bold and vibrant but at the same time subdued and moody- it is so fun to play with all of the naturally occurring palettes . When designing with flowers, like all other forms of art, it is very important to understand the way our eye perceives color and the theory behind it. Color theory is understanding how different hues, shades & tones work together and play off of one another in an arrangement.

Our skilled designers will teach you the basics of floral care, design techniques and how to utilize the fundamentals of color theory in your composition. With our guided instruction- each attendee will then create their own colorful, autumnal toned floral arrangement to take home! Perfect timing for all of the upcoming holidays and celebrations! You will leave with a thoughtful creation and the knowledge to do your own floral designing at home.

No experience or prior knowledge necessary. All materials and instruction will be provided. Feel free to bring your own floral shears if you have them- if not we have plenty. All ages welcome.
