This is a two-day private course for the flower enthusiast who is looking to do a bit more than dabble within the world of flowers. Led by the company’s Owner and Creative Director, Carly Blair, this course will widen your floral horizons to not only gain the skill sets needed to master the art of flowers, but will also expose you to the floral community around you, teaching you how to operate within it.
+ Take a guided tour of the city’s local wholesalers and product markets to learn how and where to source materials
+ Bring your bounty back to the Margot Blair Floral studios to learn how to process, store, and prep your flowers for various uses, how to select and prep the appropriate containers for your needs, and how to put your professional-grade supplies to good use.
+ Enjoy a Q & A session with Carly, giving you an insider’s view of the tricks of the trade that she’s picked up over the years that have earned her the title of Expert.
+ Receive concentrated, hands-on training on how to create three different types of arrangements.
+ Flower Crowns
+ Boutonnieres and Corsages
+ Wreaths and Garlands
+ Learn how to style and capture professional looking photographs of your creations, using little more than natural light and a smart phone.
