Bristol flower farm and florist. Pipley Flowers

Flower farmer and florist between Bristol and Bath. Wholesale flowers for florists, flower arranging workshops, growing workshops, weddings, funerals, events and sundry hire.

Workshops and courses

 

Floristry workshops take place in my 300 year old cottage in Chewton Keynsham where I have a purposely designed space for courses. All materials are provided within the cost so for a floristry workshop this will include any flowers, foliage and plants required. You will also have use of professional floristry scissors and an apron to protect your clothing.

For the growing or cutting workshops these will often involve a trip to the flower farm so I recommend bringing gardening gloves and a pair of wellingtons or other suitable footwear.

Mothers Day Treat

  DIY Wedding Flowers   Sunday 2nd April 10.30am - 3pm  Paying a professional florist to arrange your flowers is hassle free and will guarantee everything looks perfect on the big day, but some brides want to be more involved in arranging their own, or are on a smaller budget.  If this sounds like you then this workshop should appeal! You will be provided with a selection of flowers and foliage based around our mixed stem buckets which are popular with DIY brides. We will cover what flowers are suitable for various arrangements, when to buy, how best to look after them, how many you will need and how long to allow to make things up.  You will then get the chance to make a bridal bouquet, buttonhole and jam jar arrangement suitable for a table centrepiece.  This workshop is limited to 6 places so you can get all the attention you need.  I recommend bringing your inspiration pictures along with you so I can tailor the advice given to each person as much as possible.
