'on the flower farm' workshop series
We're so excited to share our love of flowers and the magic happening at the farm with you! This is the perfect opportunity to spend a magical few hours amongst the flowers. Join us on the flower farm to learn about our flower farming operation and practice simple, timeless floral design and flower arranging skills using gorgeous locally-grown flowers. Come and meet new flower-lovers or bring a friend ~ you are sure to have a lovely time either way. We are not usually open to the public, so this is your chance to get behind the scenes and experience the beauty of Flourish Flower Farm!
Our workshops are simply about inspiring your creativity, having fun, learning basic floral design skills and enjoying the picturesque flower farm.
What will you experience?
We'll begin our time together with an in-depth tour of the flower fields. As you stroll amongst the beauty, you'll learn about our growing techniques and hopefully become inspired to grow your own patch of blooms. After the tour of the fields, Niki will demonstrate how to arrange a centerpiece while talking you through her basic design philosophy and principles. Then, its your turn to create your own! You will receive one-on-one support and guidance throughout the entire process and have a huge assortment of flowers to choose from! We intentionally limit attendance to just 15 participants so that the entire experience is personal and intimate.
Our goal is for you to express your creativity using flowers. We want you to feel empowered to buy a bundle of flowers from a local farm or grocery store and have the confidence to create something spectacular. If you are planning a DIY wedding, this is the perfect way to gain some skills to use in designing your own wedding flowers. No prior experience necessary!
We'll enjoy a meal catered by Homegrown, a local's favorite restaurant which uses seasonal, locally grown ingredients. Delicious dessert using seasonal berries and ingredients is baked by our friends at Butter & Blooms. One of our talented professional photographer friends will be joining us to capture all the beauty at each event + our artist friend Bethany Joy Art will create personalized details to make the event even more special. Our beautiful, organic farm-grown flowers (so many flowers!) plus all tools, supplies and a keepsake vase are provided.

The fine print
All purchases are final. In case of severe weather, the class may be rescheduled. Attendees will be notified in advance as much as possible. While we anticipate each date selling out, we must have a minimum of 10 attendees per date to run the event.
We are in the process of developing our new farm and will be moving our full farming operation to the new location throughout 2018. Workshops will be held at whichever location has the most abundance of flowers at a given time, either at our farm in Candler (25 minutes from downtown) or the new farm in Asheville (12 minutes from downtown). You will be notified about the exact location well in advance of your workshop date.
