hands on workshops

in my Hands on design workshops, I pull back the curtain on the mechanics of how good design is cultivated and created.

I specialize in teaching foundational floral design techniques along with the specific language to better understand and think critically about your work. Through this process, you will be able to understand why you do what you do along with the tools to create more professional, sound and artful floral designs.

I provide empathetic but direct and helpful feedback for each student to learn their unique challenges and strengths as they approach their work. I am passionate about demystifying the design process for florists eager to learn new techniques and up level their work.

You can see a full list of current workshops on this page and through my email list.

Each private workshop private consists of one to three day customized curriculum based on on the individual, shop or studios objectives. Key topics often include care and handling pracitices, utilizing proper mechanics, increasing productivity and profitability, designing for safety and efficiency and foundational and updated design techniques.
