NEW SEASONAL FLORAL CLASSES
Flowers make people happy and intrinsically keep us connected 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.
All materials are provided. Refreshments and light bites will be served.
Space is limited to 20 students per session with a minimum of 10. Our classes fill up quickly, so please register promptly! We will take a waiting list and will open a second session when there are a minimum of 10 students. Classes may be taken individually. Please note that refunds will only be given when cancellations are received more than 48 hours prior to the date of the class.
Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for seasonal flower selections, flower favorites, and upcoming classes and events!
These are some of our most popular classes, and fill very quickly. We encourage you to call with your reservation and payment right away!

We’re celebrating the evening with delicious Margaritas and wine along with authentic catered Hispanic flavors for our small plates. Come join us for an evening of fun and flowers!

CLASS 2 ~ FLOWER FARM WORKSHOP
Field To Table ~ Early Bird Workshop ~ $175
Saturday, September 22nd
8:30 AM - 3:00 PM at the farm
We are delighted to bring back our Flower Farm Workshop, an experience not to be missed! We’ll meet at Little Creek Valley Flower Farm in Manchester, Ohio, located about an hour and a half from the RWF shop. Spend the day in the surrounds of rolling green hills, soaring trees, and a lush valley of flower beds. The beauty of this area and the enchanting quality of this small Mennonite family farm is inspiring and our hosts’ young family offers a heartfelt welcome.
With refurbished vintage barns available for our class, we can now open the class to 20 students with a minimum of 10 attendees.
Day At The Farm
We begin our day with a walking tour of the orchards, hoop houses and fields of flower beds and herbs as Shelley and Brad share stories and information 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 especially for us by Little Creek Valley. Following lunch you will have a full demonstration of arranging flowers and foliage from the field. You’ll create your own just-picked arrangement with tips and assists from RWF designers. Afterwards, we’ll take a group photo and head for home!
