Join us for a great morning of flower design. The Sampler classes are for individuals who want to try out our school and go home with a wealth of knowledge about the world of flower designing. It’s three great projects covering American to European design. All your flowers and containers will be provided as well.

The teacher was funny, knowledgeable, and you get to take home three bouquets at the end of the class!

The class was ok, I liked that we left with beautiful flowers and a vase. The instructor wasn’t so great, he was constantly on his phone and eating. He even went in to the back away from the class and sat down to eat and go on his phone whilst everyone was struggling with the task. There was an older lady who had questions for him and he just seemed annoyed to be having to answer them. I wouldn’t do it again for this reason.
Response from Michael Gaffney: Verified Educator

"the student is incorrect in her observance.  There was no ignoring of questions or phone calls.  That's why I have assistants.  As they can answer calls or take a lunch break. What an odd thing to comment on from a fantastic class. ''. Her work was beautiful and she learned a lot. That should have been her focus"

This class was fantastic! I was really surprised at how much I learned in such a short time. I left with three very professional bouquets and confidence that I can replicate and even build on these on my own in the future. I also learned about some great ways to care for cut flowers and extend their life. Would definitely recommend this class!
