Featherstone's Flower Club

Join us for floral indulgence throughout the year.

 

You will have privileged access to our 3 acres of flowers and foliage where we will teach you about growing, cutting, conditioning and arranging flowers.

 

Suitable for all levels of experience, Katie and Jess will share their years of knowledge about Floriculture and sustainable floristry techniques.

 

Sessions will usually involve a walk and discussion in the field on the seasonal topic for the month as well as harvesting flowers for the evening's session before bringing them back to the stunning Featherstone's Tithe barn. There you be will taught how to condition and arrange your flowers focusing on a different technique each month to celebrate the best of the seasonal blooms available. Refreshments will be served. At the end of the session you are welcome to take your flowers to enjoy at home.

 

Your purchase buys you eight sessions which will run between March and December. There will be 10 sessions available meaning you can chose which eight you attend and so do not miss out if you are on holiday or unable to come.

 

We will be running two groups, one morning and one evening. Each session is around 2.5 hours long, from 0930 to 1200 or 1830 to 2100.

 

If you would like to attend all 10 the extra sessions can be purchased as an add on - just pop us a message.
