This course includes advanced linear, Phoenix, wire structures, grand tropical, and cascade or waterfall designs. Techniques include basing, binding, banding, wiring, taping, and the use of chicken wire as you work with a wide range of flowers and foliage.

You create your arrangements, upload an image or video of each final work, and receive personalized feedback on your designs from your skilled instructor. The learning continues with two online, interactive sessions as Godshalk provides expert advice on how to improve your designs and take your floristry to the next level.
