This series of classes is intended for beginning-level students who have an interest in learning 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.
After learning the basic floristry techniques in the Introductory Series, the Intermediate Series takes students to the next level of floristry. This program will teach students how to build recipes and purchase flowers at the Flower Market as well as how to manage scaling up their projects while delivering very fashionable designs.
*Please note, you must have taken the Introductory Series prior to registering for this Intermediate Series.
The Advanced Design Series follows the Intensive Series where students learn more advanced techniques and begin to develop their own style of floral design. Students will learn four new design mechanics and how to differentiate between various styles including organic, classic and modern. Each student will also be responsible for creating a concept and design and selecting their own flowers to best fit their concept.
In this three-day course, students will learn the full process of creating the overall event design for a wedding. Beginning with making storyboards, students will receive instruction on conducting consultations and creating proposals, learning how to purchase floral products and then creating the mock-execution of the event’s designs. Each student is required to develop their own wedding floral designs based on specific client requests. The course finishes with a mockup table decor and presentation to the “client.” This is a great opportunity for florists and event planners to practice event production with the constraints of specific client requests and budgets.
This course is taught by the talented FlowerSchool staff designers and instructors in conjunction with some of the most accomplished designers in the Wedding and Events industry in the Los Angeles area.
