Flower Arranging (Beginners)
Reviewed by Anonymous on 7/9/2019
Little instructions were given in the basics and principles of flower arrangement. Bulk of time was spent working quietly on own pieces. Though more learning could’ve been done, it was still a good value for class considering the quality of flowers and number of arrangements done during the two sessions.

I really enjoy the classes for both the wonderful teaching and beautiful floral material provided, it's a great learning experience for me as a beginner who has zero floral design exposure prior to the classes. The size of class if under 10, the teacher has many years of industry practice and is a great teacher makes the learning much fun. I got a lots out of the learning as it offers 4 different floral design styles and you bring all these beautiful flowers home after the classes. If you have a passion for floral design , like to express your creativity and want to explore more as a beginner, I would highly recommend you the classes, it worth every penny of them.
