NEW SEASONAL FLORAL CLASSES
Flowers make people happy and intrinsically connect us with the natural world.
At RWF, we believe that all designers and students of any experience level benefit from every opportunity to design with flowers. There is always something to be learned. In our hands-on classes, you will be introduced to each topic with a demonstration, sharing our approach to flower arranging. You will learn flower care and handling; elements of design; and mechanics and techniques. RWF designers will work with small groups as you create your own arrangement to take home.
Space is limited to 22 students per session with a minimum of 10.
Please note that refunds/credits will only be given when cancellations are received more than 48 hours prior to the date of the class.
FLOWER FARM WORKSHOPS
We are delighted to bring back our Flower Farm Workshop, an experience not to be missed! Spend the day in the surrounds of rolling green hills and a lush valley of flower beds at Little Creek Valley Flower Farm. The beauty of the area and this Mennonite family farm is inspiring and our hosts’ young family offers a heartfelt welcome.
We begin our day with a walking tour of the orchards, hoop houses and fields of thriving flower beds as Brad shares stories about their farm life with flora and fauna and family, growing flowers, and answering your questions as we chat. Next, we will give a short talk on how to choose flower varietals and colors to create a pleasing arrangement as we discuss designing with color, form, and texture. We’ll head out to the fields with our buckets and clippers, and each student will forage for flowers, foliage and herbs for their own bouquet.
As the flowers hydrate, we’ll have a refreshing locally sourced farm-to-table lunch prepared for us by Little Creek Valley. Following lunch you will have a full demonstration of arranging flowers and foliage from the field. The large 1850’s barn will be ours for the day, for lunch and our workshop space. You’ll create your own just-picked bouquet with tips and assists from RWF designers. Afterwards, we’ll take a group photo and head for home!
