Welcome….come on in

Barley Wood Floristry offers a range of fun and creative workshops in the relaxed and friendly setting of our studio in the beautiful Barley Wood Walled Garden, embedded in the heart of the Somerset countryside. Full tuition and materials are provided along with delicious refreshments, and of course you get to take home your fabulous creation at the end.

We grow our own selection of seasonal cut flowers and foliage on site and you will be able to pick and use some of these in your arrangement when availability allows.

Corporate/Team Building Workshops

If you would like to book us for a corporate or team building workshop please contact us.

Private or Residential Workshops

We also offer private workshops for groups of 5 or more on a date and time of your choice (availability permitting).
These take place at our studio, or we offer a residential workshop if preferred.

Exciting workshops in beautiful surroundings

Your workshop will take place in our studio located in Barley Wood Barn. We enjoy an enviable spot at the top of the walled garden site where our doors open out onto the Barley Wood apple orchard and then the breathtaking views of Wrington Vale and the Mendip Hills beyond. It’s an ever changing canvas with each new season!

From Spring through to Summer relax and enjoy the scented smell of the abundance of Lavender outside the studio doors and the apple blossom in the orchards. You may even spy a few
bumble bees and butterflies feeding off the nectar.

It really is the perfect setting to relax, take in nature and hone your creative skills. But don’t take our word for it, come and experience it for yourself!
