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. Michael Gaffney will be there to teach and also give you his book Design Star and autograph it for you. All your flowers and containers will be provided as well. In this class you learn how to keep flowers alive for weeks instead of days and everyone will go home with their free flower arrangements. By the end of the day, you will have created so many flower designs, you will practically need a shopping basket to take them all home with you!
