With our Worcestershire countryside setting we are surrounded by inspiring flora, with hedgerows, woodlands and fields to wander. Our studio space is an old timber framed barn full of atmosphere and history, and the perfect backdrop for styling your work. The barn looks out to a naturalistic garden planted with unusual perennials and climbers, a gravel bed garden and large swimming pond to dip your toes in on warm summer days.

At Vervain we hold various workshops throughout the year, these are normally held on the farm where we are based in Worcestershire.

With half day, full day and two day classes, you can truly immerse and surround yourself with flowers.
There are classes to suit all abilities, whether you are a novice and wish to learn new skills, or a seasoned florist with a desire to be inspired and challenged. We will work hands on with you to make sure you leave feeling fulfilled and inspired by flowers and your process.

Each class begins with a walk around Vervain’s growing area, a unique space that has sprung up in and around the plant nursery on the farm. By creating new flower beds between tunnels, using old poly tunnel frames and taking over small areas of unused land we have created enough space to grow as many unusual and beautiful flowers as we can. During your class you are welcome to break from creating your work to explore the growing area to gather inspiration and extra flowers.
