Please click the links below to sign up for the Introductory, Intermediate, and Advanced Weekend Florist Series. 

2 Day Introductory Series

This series of classes starts at the very beginning of floral design and teaches the foundation level skills in floral design. Skills include how to correctly handle and care for flowers, how to use a floral knife and clippers, and the conditioning of flowers for optimal vase-life longevity. This series teaches simple, high-end designs that highlight the flowers’ most beautiful and unique characteristics. Once learned, these designs can be recreated at home again and again.

2 Day Intermediate Series

After learning the basic floristry techniques in the Introduction Series, the Intermediate Series will introduce the next level of floral design skills and techniques including purchasing flowers and building recipes.  The prerequisite for this program is the Introduction Series.  Students will be expected to have a basic knowledge of floral design and floristry skills such as using the tools and conditioning flowers.

2-Day Advanced Series

The Advanced Design Series follows the Introduction and Intermediate Series programs where students learn more advanced techniques, such as color theory, recipe building and ultimately begin to develop their own style of floral design. This is where the students become designers and ultimately gain the confidence needed to call yourself a floral designer.
