Flower design & events
At Dairy Barns, we’re passionate about flowers and we offer a wide range of flower design day schools and short residential courses for beginners and those with experience of flower design. Our aim is for everyone to have an enjoyable and relaxing day, with an excellent homemade lunch, whilst learning new skills and enjoying creating your own designs.
We demonstrate and explain the techniques used in the designs and offer guidance for all participants throughout the day. Some courses are offered on an all–inclusive basis where your flowers and materials are provided, for others we will send you a fully comprehensive list of materials to bring.
From time to time have guest tutors and courses in other art and craft subjects.
We also regularly run courses and demonstration days exclusively for clubs and groups and we have ample parking for coaches.
