The following workshops are just a sampling of the classes and private events hosted by West Queen Floral Studio all year long. To inquire about additional offerings or to book a private event, please contact us!
From Grocery Store to Glamorous
Great for all levels and perfect for team building groups; this class is designed to highlight the basics of floral design. The class walks the group through the creation of a simple centerpiece using flowers easily purchased at retail stores, creating a beautiful piece to take home afterwards.
$55 - $75 per person (based on materials)
From Farmers Market to Fabulous
Similar to the popular Grocery Store to Glamorous this class is a bit more free form. For this class we order flowers from a local farm or CSA and create the design as a group based on what is delivered. A bit like Iron Florist, we talk through vase selection and creative greenery options while I design on the fly. This class is a seasonal class and price depends on the growers availability and participant vase choice.
$55 - $75 per person (based on materials) with optional vase purchase
Twining Tulip Bowl
An elegant class that all levels will enjoy. This class is less involved than other design classes and is well suited to a group wanting to learn but also socialize. Each participant will go home with their own creation as well as the knowledge base to recreate this piece for home or events.
$60 - $80 per person (based on arrangement size)
A class for all levels but one that the creative soul will love. A modern approach to a high end centerpeice using bullion wire and Cymbidium Orchids.
