Spring 2018 workshops

i fiori offers several workshops aimed at those who would like to try their hand at floral and botanical design. No experience is required, we will teach you everything you need to know! Workshops are kept small in size to ensure that everyone gets individual attention.
The hands-on workshop fee includes all fresh and dried material, all supplies, and two hours (plus) of instructions.  During the workshop, all tools will be provided for your use (clippers, wire, scissors etc.) At the end of the workshop you will be taking home your design(s). Pre-registration is required as class size is limited. To reserve your spot in any workshop we require a $10.00 deposit. The balance of the fee is due upon your arrival.

Imagine a long harvest table filled with buckets of flowers in gorgeous colours... and then being guided through the steps of preparing and arranging them... then selecting exactly what you want and making a bouquet. Or maybe 2.
This is a true hands-on workshop.  We will build hand-tied bouquets, and then go through the steps of arranging them in various vases. Bonus: you get to pick my brains for 2 hours about flowers, floral design, what is seasonally available, and what is worth paying the price to be imported (!)
All flowers, greenery, ferns and tools will be provided to let you make a unique and personal bouquet..

your wedding ~ your bouquet: 
d-i-y bride workshop

date: book at your convenience
duration: 2 - 2 1/2 hours
cost: $150.00
You may bring one other person at a nominal charge

This is a complete hands-on, one-on-one workshop where you will learn how to design and assemble the flowers for your wedding. We cover the selection and preparation of your flowers, tips and techniques, and how to calculate how many flowers you will need. You will assemble, arrange and finish your bouquet, build coordinated boutonnieres and corsages, and learn how to make the most of your guest table flowers.
When booking, we will discuss the flowers and greenery that you would like to use in your bouquet, their availability and ideally build your workshop bouquet with many of those flowers.
You will leave the workshop with a beautiful bouquet, a pair of professional flower shears, a roll of waxed floral tape, floral wire, and a brainful of information and new skills to help you make your special day very personal indeed.
