classes and workshops

Want to learn how to arrange flowers from your garden? Or maybe create a succulent garden? Or just want to have a fun night our with girlfriends? Field & Vase offers a selection of classes that teach design techniques using local flowers and plants.

Classes are for all experience levels unless otherwise noted. All floral materials, supplies and a container are included with every class and participants take home their finished arrangements.

Classes are taught in a variety of locations and by Barbara Rietscha unless otherwise noted. We also do private classes so contact us if interested in booking one. Check back often as we continually add classes.

Seasonal Craft Workshop

The Kitchen at Boston Public Market

  • Tuesday, December 5 | Holiday Garland

The Seasonal Craft Workshop is a series of hands-on floral design classes. Each class features locally grown, seasonal, and fresh-cut flowers artfully chosen so each participant can create their own unique and lovely bouquet. Attend one class or all three.

Join us to learn the basic techniques of floral design, color composition and care instructions. While you design your arrangement, you will be treated to a wine tasting of three different wines by Alan Howarth of the Massachusetts Wine Shop. You will also sample cheeses from local Massachusetts farms, compliments of Appleton Farms.
