    Carolyn was a great instructor, she made sure to review each bouquet in the class and give input. Lots of great tips on how to place, maintain and style flowers. I would definitely take more classes with her and at the school in general.

    The teacher for this class explained very well the purpose of this flower making class. She demonstrated how the floral arrangement was supposed to look. She was not upset that my flower arrangement came out differently from her demonstration floral arrangement.

    I was a bit disappointed as the class stated open studio so I thought there would be an option to learn about hand-tied bouquets since the picture associated with the class description was a bouquet. Instead we created a follow along compact centerpiece arrangement. Overall learned some new tips and it was great working with fresh flowers, just wish it had been more clear on what I was signing up for.

    It was a good class and I learned a little bit about the flowers they decided to teach that day. I thought the teacher could be a little bit more hands-on and give you some tips while you’re working with the flowers. This class is more of a learn about how to flower arena and then make your own based on what you saw it’s not really an introduction to being a florist or things you should know on how to conditioner prepare flowers

Review Summary by CourseHorse

Students enjoyed and appreciated the Beginners Floral Design class at Open Studio. The majority found the instructors provided helpful tips and techniques for floral arrangement. Along with general introductions and understanding, students were able to learn about specific flower types, arrangement assembly, and design principles. Many articipants fondly recall a pleasant atmosphere and loved their new flower arrangements. Quotes: 1. "I really enjoyed this class! The instructor was very informative and experienced and taught us many professional florist techniques ... by the end of the class every student had a gorgeous arrangement in a elegant glass vase." 2.

I'm disappointed they didn't give us hands on experience on prepping and cleaning, as this is essential to flower arranging." 3. "The class was really great.

Question from Anonymous
Hello, I would like to know if I would have the option to choose to do a compact centerpiece and not the hand-tied bouquet? My friend and I are interested in learning how to do a centerpiece.
Answer from Lauryn M. Verified Student
Honestly, once the demonstration is complete and you begin to do your own arrangement, you can make it as compact as you like. The instructor basically provided instruction on one simple centerpiece arrangement and we took her instruction and designed it however we wanted. We did not put together a hand-tied bouquet. However, she is open to answering any questions beyond the arrangement we were creating.
