Private Workshops

Our workshops are held at our 1830’s Stone Cottage Studio and French Peasant Gardens.
Set in a beautiful farming field on your way out of Galt, where Dundas Street becomes Highway 8. 

A beautiful escape from fast-lane living with flowers, vino, friends, mothers or daughters. 

These workshops are typically 90 minutes.
Price includes: materials, instruction and merriment!
Guests are welcome (and encouraged!) to bring their own wine, beverages and snacks.

Foraged Herb Wreath

$75 per person ~ minimum ten guests

Includes materials and instruction

Enjoy a stroll through our French Peasant Gardens, where you will collect herbs such as sage, lavender and winter savoury. You will entwine these with dried flowers into a twig circle to create a beautiful French Everlasting Wreath.

With proper care this foliage will last several seasons.

Seasonal Table Circle

$95 per person ~ minimum ten guests

Includes materials and instruction

Set in a wicker circle (think over-sized nest), you will cleverly place all of the season’s best foliage and add lovely floral accents to create what we call a Table Circle. This is like a wreath set flat onto a table, so you can place a candle in the centre. 

With proper care this foliage will last several weeks. You can gently replace the flower as they tire.

Floral Farewell to Downton Abbey

$125 per person ~ minimum ten guests

Includes materials and instruction

In an authentic 1920’s pressed-glass compote (yes, you take the antique home!), you will design a beautiful display of greenery, roses, pomegranates, antique garden roses and other gorgeous fresh cut flowers. All in our favourite colours: red, coral and wine – to create a beautiful floral decorative worthy of a Downton Abbey set. 

This is designed to be freshened up over the weeks ahead as the flowers tire. We will share with you a few of our secret tricks!
