In this workshop you will learn how to create elevated floral designs!
We will discuss the mechanics behind these big arrangements and after I give a demonstration on how to create a piece each student will then create their own arrangement. We will discuss pricing as well as transporting these arrangements. Students will be able to take home their arrangement, sans candelabra/vase!
