Spring 2024 Hands-On Bouquet Classes
In 4 Cities across America, leading florist and USA's Representative at the 2023 World Cup, Jenny Thomasson AIFD PFCI EMC AAF will teach you to take your bouquet and personal flower skills to the next level this Spring, 2024. Her unique vision of building creative confidence in this specialized and curated experience will guide all the attendees to insights of mechanics, technique and the business of bouquet floristry.
What should I expect --- 1:1 Personal instruction and full explanation on how to create some of the most sought after designs for Wedding bouquets and Personal Flowers. In two days Jenny will share with you the tips and tricks on how to accomplish fresh, innovative styles and mechanics. This will give you the tools and confidence to sell, design and produce each as well as how to price and make money providing this line of floristry.
We will be hosting a limited number of attendees for each of these workshops so spaces are exclusive.
Day One --- We will discuss how to manage your costs to be profitable, organize your flower ordering and how to build your botanical selection. You will be walked through the steps to conceptualize one-of-a-kind bouquets, the material selection and examples on presenting the composition to the client. There will be a wide array of examples that Jenny herself has created, where you can gather inspiration and hands on time with assistance to design some of your very own.
Day Two --- The day is spent with an in depth discussion on proper mechanics for Cascade, Teardrop, Asymmetrical, Crescent, Loose & Airy Bouquets and how to customize your very own holder for any shape you can imagine. Also included is time to explore the marvelous world for Avant Garde personal and body flowers. This is meant for sharing the fantasy of floristry to the customer and the floral designer that wants something unique to show. With the knowledge of Day One and Day Two there will be hands-on time to explore your creative vision and inspiration.
