Wildeflower workshops were designed with the intention of creating a safe, inspiring space for those wanting to learn more about floral design. This includes budding hobbyists, those who already have some experience, and florists who wish to grow further and find an authentic voice using floral design. We offer a few different workshops for various skill levels, and are constantly growing our workshop experiences and community.
