What you'll learn in this floral design class:

You will get an email that indicates how you should condition the flowers to ensure they stay healthy. You will want to make sure to have a sharp pair of scissors or pruners to easily cut the stems.

The course was wonderful! I am a total amateur but felt very comfortable and relaxed. Tom was very accommodating, helpful & informative. He made the class very enjoyable, interactive but still fed a newby lots of information. Will absolutely look into taking another class with him!
