Seasonal Flower-Arranging Workshops

One of my absolute favorite things to do is share my love of floral design and local flowers with others through floral arranging workshops.

These workshops with give you the skills and confidence you need to arrange flowers that you've purchased from the farmer's market or picked from your own cutting garden.

I will host a few public workshops each year for anyone to join in and learn the basics of garden-style floral design and experience designing your own floral arrangement to take home. If you would like to know when the next workshop will be, sign up for my email newsletter at the bottom of the page.

These 2-hour events include approximately one hour of instruction on the basic elements of garden-style floral design such as technique, color, form, and flower care as well as a demonstration. The second hour will be hands-on, in which participants will make their own floral arrangements with a large selection of beautiful, fresh, locally-grown flowers and foliage with my support as needed. All supplies and ingredients are included.

In addition to these public workshops, I also offer floral arranging workshops for private events like team-building events, baby showers, or groups of friends who are interested in doing them together.

Workshops start a $75 per person (depending on the season and availability of flowers and size of arrangements) with a minimum of five participants.
