Well-structured and engaging learning experience. The instructor modeled making a bouquet and gave helpful tips. Then, participants had time to make their own floral arrangements and receive feedback from the instructor. We all left with a bouquet and vase. Now, next time I get supermarket flowers I’ll know how to make a beautiful arrangement.

Class was half learning and half arranging. All materials were provided and you received individual assistance while designing your bouquet. Teacher was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful

I wish there was more content. It was one arrangement. It would have been better if the demonstration was multiple and the hands on was one.
