Lola Floral Design Workshops
When I began floral design back in 2008, I looked around for workshops and training sessions for the kind of style I was into; Naturalistic and a bit wild with a little bit of sculptural interest. Always with unique flowers that looked like they were clipped out of a plant collectors garden. There weren’t any. The workshops that did exist looked as if they’d been running for half a century with mass produced South American flowers.
Now, I’m happy to say I can give you, growing floral designer, the workshop I wished I had. Whether you are just starting out, are in the wedding industry and want to expand your offerings into floral, or have been traditionally trained and are looking for a fresher look, you’ll want to sign up for our classes! I would be so excited to have you.
We will build one large, lush arrangement in a footed compote that you can keep. Each person will have over $100 in the most beautiful and unique local and sustainably grown flowers available. We’ll be using sustainable methods for building structure and will cover cost data (!!!) and transportation issues. Did I mention you will be overflowing with flowers?
This arrangement will be challenging to build, but I always learned best by jumping into something challenging. Then all the easy stuff is... well, easy.
Here are some images from our last workshop- floral design.
And I must say, it is an honor to be able to see so many great people walk out of the class with arms full of fantastic floral designs. Teaching all of you reminded me of my own journey from desk job to dream job. I remember worrying, ” What if I am giving up a career I’ve worked so hard for – for another career I know little about but I think I’ll be happier with…. What if I’m still not happy?” It was the right move for me and I love my life. I’m so happy to share with you some hard earned knowledge about how to create beauty for your events and life with a focus on building this into a career.

And if you’re on the fence about the floral design workshop, let me just tell you that there are adorable sheep on view from our window. Nuff said.
