MASTERCLASSES FOR FLORISTS

My intimate workshops are designed for fellow florists or anyone who may be thinking about changing to a career in floristry. If you’re a more established florist who is looking to learn a new skill/technique or would like a creative and inspiring day away from their usual routine to gain a different perspective. My selection of  carefully curated masterclasses will aid and support you your future development.

Seasonal Masterclasses

FOAM FREE ASYMMETRIC ARCH & BRIDAL BOUQUET MASTERCLASS

The idea of pairing these two designs together in the same day is to create a coherent story that will allow for wonderful photographs when as a group we style them together at the end of the day. In the first half of this class you will create a large scale foam free installation using an array of beautiful seasonal foliages and blooms. I will guide you through the mechanics to create a foam free arch along with discussing costing your arch for weddings too. After lunch we will then create a bridal bouquet with me guiding you through my front facing technique and discussing the receipe/ingredient method I use to create my bridal bouquets. With gorgeous silk ribbons to adorn your bouquet with too that you also get to keep. At the end we will style your creation and I will capture images of your work for you to use on your social media channels and websites.
