This Floral Retreat is comprised of two days focused on the natural elements of floral design. So often we form flowers to fit our design mold instead of letting them show us the way through their natural shape and rhythm. By embracing naturalism, you can elevate your design expertise, learn how to focus on form, and open yourself up to finding a new voice of expression. 

During your two days spent at the DRD Institute of Floristry in Dallas, your instructor Jenny Thomasson will guide you through this journey of self-exploration while teaching advanced techniques in organic tabletop structures, how to create natural floral supports, floral sustainability, naturalist bouquet design, as well as a master class on foliage. 

Each day will include intimate lectures and demonstrations followed by a hands-on floral design session incorporating all your new skills. Fresh, seasonal, and gorgeous flowers in abundance are included for each hands-on session and Jenny will provide one-on-one feedback throughout.

One of our students favorite parts of these 2-day intensives is the opportunity to meet and build a community with other florists, floral designers, and flower-lovers. Build relationships with wonderful people who share your passions while designing or sharing a meal, and enjoy being surrounded by all your new friends. Every two-day course includes professional headshots and photography of all your floral designs for you to use on your websites, portfolios or on social media.
