Events & Workshops

The floral studio here at Dorset Walled Garden offers seasonal flower arranging workshops and masterclasses in floral design, unique tablescapes, as well as more technical installations, using flowers from the cutting garden.

We aim to provide a day of floral indulgence, whilst immersed in the peaceful calm of the walled garden, with noisy birdsong, buzzing wildlife and scented flowers all round.

Secateurs in hand, participants will work with flowers and foliage from the garden following our talented teacher's inspiring demonstration.

Flowers are grown for their colour palette and to suit the floristry courses, which vary in style, theme and technicality. Previous floristry class photos can be seen in our workshop gallery.
