Services

Workshops and flower farming consulting services.

Workshops

Private workshops are on hold due to COVID-19, but when we’re able to host again, workshops can be booked for your own venue, or at the studio in SLO. 

2-hour workshops include a demo, one-on-one instruction, and light refreshments. We supply all the materials and tools needed to create your piece, which you’ll get to take home at the end of the workshop. Read on for the types of workshops available from Farmermaid Flowers.

Bouquets and Centerpieces
Learn floral design techniques that you can apply at home. We will be using fresh flowers to make either hand-tied bouquets or vase arrangements.

Wedding Arrangements
If you’re thinking of doing your own arrangements for a 2021 wedding, but you’re in need of some guidance, we’ll be creating online tutorials this summer to teach you how to make things like boutonnieres, corsages, and bouquets.

Wreaths
Learn to make wreaths using handmade willow hoops, and a combination of fresh and dried foliage and flowers.

Custom Floral Design Instruction
If there’s something you’d like to learn how to create, either yourself or with a group, email us with a proposal and let’s see what we can put together!
