What you'll learn in this floral design class:

Join us for a great day of flower design. The Sampler course is for individuals who want to try out our school and go home with a wealth of knowledge about the world of flower designing. It’s three great projects covering American to European design. 

Michael Gaffney will be there to teach and also give you his book Design Star and autograph it for you. All your flowers and containers will be provided as well. In this class you learn how to keep flowers alive for weeks instead of days and everyone will go home with their three flower arrangements. 

By the end of the day, you will have created so many flower designs, you will practically need a shopping basket to take them all home with you! It’s a great introduction into the world of flower design. Learn some of the techniques with Michael Gaffney as taught on the Today Show.

Floral Design Sampler
Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/8/2019
I liked the class the teacher was helpful and showed and gave easy directions how to make floral arrangements. I think they needed to have better nippers to cut the flowers, with otherwise it was a fun class. Also I think the money situations should be taken care of in advance of the class, or at least in the beginning not after the instructor starts talking about the class

Michael Gaffney taught 3 different arrangements/techniques in one night very efficiently. Fun, fast-paced, low-key class. Beautiful results!

Loved the class. I can’t believe I made such beautiful arrangements. Definitely planning on taking the 3 day class next.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 7/26/2017
very enjoyable class, however, it was a very large class (approximately 30 students) - smaller size as it was so hands-on would have been preferable. Instructor was personable, knowledgeable, and the class was well planned out, with materials at the ready. It would have been helpful to have been told to bring a bag or bin to take projects home in!
