FLORAL DESIGN INTENSIVE: September 21 - 23, 2017 $2,800
This workshop is designed for both aspiring and amateur florists who are wanting to develop and expand their skill set for more flexibility and creativity in their work. During this 3-day Floral Intensive we will delve into the art of floral design using exquisite blooms and foliage to capture the essence of your creative expression in a welcoming atmosphere that both challenges and inspires you. In this hands-on course we will create multiple elements of a styled shoot touching on the highlights of Event Design and share with you the mechanics of design and technique to create hand-tied bouquets, focal arrangements, centerpieces, floral installations, backdrop work and flat-lays. Each day we will have instruction and demonstration followed by hands-on sessions.
Bellaflora Farms is set amidst 20 bucolic acres in Walla Walla's Wine Country offering a gorgeous pastoral setting tucked in amongst romantic vineyards and verdant woods along rambling Mill Creek. The gardens here are peppered with fragrant garden roses, lavender, peonies, wisteria, honeysuckle, dahlias and lush foliage providing the perfect setting to embark on a small foraging excursion throughout the grounds and secret gardens in addition to the loads of lush blooms that will be at the ready.
