This workshop is for all our flower junkies who are looking to delve deep into the event design world. Come spend the day with us at Muse at the Mill, a beautiful and historic wedding and event venue right down the hill from our studio where we will cover the ins and outs of floral design for special events. We will cover the full event design process, from start to finish, including design concept, budgeting, ordering, planning, and finally execution of the event.
We will begin with assigning students a “client” and event that they will be creating floral designs for over the course of the day. Students will create a design plan and proposal, learn how to order and purchase floral products, and then will create the floral designs for their event. Owner and lead designer Amy Dunlap will guide students through the entire process, sharing her extended knowledge and experience in the industry. Amy will also demonstrate design techniques for assorted styles of centerpieces and floral arrangements.
Students will get hands-on design practice creating centerpieces and one large statement design for their event. We will also work together to design and create a large-scale floral installation (chandelier). Finally, we will finish the day with a sit-down dinner enjoying the beautiful setting created by our students and toasting the day’s accomplishments.
Registration cost includes all flowers and materials, snacks, drinks, boxed lunch, dinner from The Porch, and a swag bag of design tools. In order to guarantee that students get maximum attention, attendance is limited to ten people and we need a minimum of five students to hold the workshop. Questions?

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a workshop that is focused on wedding florals so we will not be demonstrating or creating any personal florals (bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, etc.).
