Summer Vase Floristry Workshop

This workshop led by Vivienne Brophy, Airfield Estate’s collaborating florist, will provide you with the skills required to create your own Summer Vase to take home. All decorative foliage and florals used will be sourced from Airfield Estate’s organically grown gardens.

Refreshments will be provided during the demonstration, and your ticket includes entry to Airfield Estate for the duration of the afternoon should you choose to explore the gardens following the workshop.


The event will begin at 10am at Airfield Estate with Vivienne Brophy demonstrating the creation of a Summer Vase. During the demonstration, coffee/tea and pastries will be provided. You will then dive into creating your very own vase arrangement, using florals and foliage from the fields, herbaceous boarders, and cutting beds in Airfield Estate.

During the workshop, you will learn the following skills: 

– Advice on contemporary design, form and texture

– Technical placement methods

– Selection, quantity, conditioning and maintenance of foliage and summer blooms
