Thursday 14 September
Friday 15 September
£70 per person
Join the floristry team for a half day workshop in which you will create a seasonal flower arrangement using flowers from the Chatsworth Cutting Garden.
Led by our expert team, you will have the opportunity to select and cut your own flowers from the production garden, before returning to our covered outdoor venue the Stickyard to create a beautiful seasonal arrangement to take home.
Please meet at the Stickyard promptly at the start of the session - the Stickyard can be located by walking up the hill towards the farmyard and taking the right fork towards the Stand Wood. Please note there is a short steep footpath up to the venue. Unfortunately this event is not suitable for visitors with mobility difficulties due to the number of steps and un-even ground around the production garden.
Tea and coffee will be provided on arrival and your ticket includes entry to the Chatsworth Garden so you can explore at your own pace throughout the day.
We will be outside whatever the weather so please wear appropriate clothing and sensible shoes. We advise wearing long trousers as you will be walking amongst flower beds. Please bring gardening gloves.
Make a stay of it
With so much to see, do, and explore in the Peak District, it's a shame to only come for the day, so why not stay a little longer? Our country cottages, shepherd's huts, hotels, and inns are the perfect base for exploring all that Chatsworth, Derbyshire, and the Peak District has to offer. Find out more.
