What you'll learn in this floral design class:

Join us for a great afternoon or evening 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! It’s a great introduction into the world of flower design. Learn some of the techniques with Michael Gaffney as taught on the Today Show.

The Sampler is one class consisting of three different class projects.

Note: Tuition covers everything (Includes $200 value of flowers, tools, books and the containers that are yours to keep).

Learned some good tips, but the flowers we designed did not hold up as Mr. Gaffney said they would.

The class was part of a program already running. I as the only student who was not part of the program and therefore did not know what to do with the flowers, how to cut them ,what to use knife or a pare of siccors .Also the subject of that class was FUNERALS ARRANGEMENT. It was not a regular flower arrangement like the description of the class indicates. It was a big dessapoiment ! Please make sure you change your concept. I wont recommend this class to anyone.

I had a lot of fun with this class. The instructor knew so much about design and how to apply it to the business world. The students were pretty great as well. When I felt lost, they would just help out. I would like to take this class again.
