What you'll do

We'll start the class late in the afternoon . You may bring your own vase, or we'll provide one. We begin with a walk through the gardens, talking about different flowers, when to harvest them and what their usefulness is in arranging. As we walk, you'll also harvest the flowers you want to use for your arrangement. We'll teach you what to look for and how to cut. Then, it's back to the shed and the shade. Next, I'll give a brief overview of elements and structure of floral design - face, focus and filler flowers, balance, etc. Then, the work begins! You start arranging, using the flowers you just cut. It doesn't get any fresher than that! As you work, you can ask questions of me or others in the group - we will all learn together! As we finish up the design session, we'll spend some time complimenting/critiquing each other's arrangements.

Learn more about Kaye

Kaye

I'm the owner of Irvington Spring Farm, an urban farm which has provided exceptional cut flowers to the Lynchburg area for 25 years. I've also worked as the Rosarian at Lynchburg's historic Old City Cemetery for 15 years, curating a collection of 500 antique and heirloom roses. I am a co-founder of Blue Ridge Conservation, a group dedicated to increasing awareness of the importance of pollinators and conservation-focused gardening. I speak regularly at gardening gatherings, but what I enjoy most is sharing what I love one-on-one as I interact with people who visit the farm to buy flowers and enjoy the gardens.

What's included

You may bring your own vase. We'll provide you with one if you don't. We also will have clippers, buckets and any other…

Where you'll be

The entire experience takes place at Irvington Spring Farm. If it looks like rain, bring a raincoat for the beginning; the design and arranging will be under our farm shed. The meal will be outside in the garden if weather permits; under the shed if not.

Things to keep in mind

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips
