During this online workshop, enhance the skills developed in Introduction to Floral Design I by creating arrangements that focus on dominance, contrast, proportion, scale, balance, texture, and pattern. Topics include the Biedermeier style and formal linear arrangements, topiary techniques, hand-tied bouquets, and corsage making. Advance your floral design development with further studies in the care and handling of tropical flowers. Stir your creative spirit and broaden your skills with the use of cutting tools, a variety of containers, sustainable design strategies, and gorgeous floral materials through a series of online presentations and video tutorials.

Then it’s your turn to practice what you’ve learned, using three shipments delivered to your home and containing all of the supplies (excluding containers) and flowers needed to make the arrangements demonstrated in the online class. Create your arrangements, upload three images (front, side, and back views) or a video of each final work, and receive personalized feedback on your designs from expert instructor Cres Motzi. The learning continues with two online interactive sessions during which Motzi provides advice on how to improve your designs and bring your floristry to the next level. 

This course meets one of the core requirements of Longwood Gardens’ Certificate in Floral Design.

Shipping of design material is limited to the continental United States.

Online materials remain available for six months after the course end date
