Floral Design Class Package – $1,200.00
Floral design is an intricate and thoughtful process – much more complex than simply putting stems in a vase. Learning the fundamentals of each step in the practice will give you the foundation needed to design a floral concept, craft an elegant arrangement, and even succeed in coordinating florals for a major event. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll become comfortable handling flowers, develop your abilities and style, and walk out of class feeling like a pro – with a little something to take home.
Tailored Twig’s Floral Design class package will include six classes taking place every Wednesday evening over a six-week time frame, beginning July 3rd at 6:30pm. Each guest will receive two glasses of wine and a cheese plate at each class.
