Over the years, I have taught (and helped teach) close to 250 floral designers and enthusiasts. The question I hear most regularly is about the backside of the arrangement or installation...the mechanics behind the flowers. Even as a kid learning to bake, I learned that if you don't have the right tools and preparation, it's just not going to end up well. It's true in life and it's especially true in the floral industry. An arrangement has to have good bones; good enough to withstand transport to a venue, not to mention an evening of guests dancing around and probably bumping into. That's why I designed this workshop. It's all about the mechanics.
A workshop on Nantucket Island? Well, I figured if I was going to host my own workshop, I might as well host it in my favorite place in the world. While I live in DC, Nantucket has my heart. It's where I feel most like myself. It's where my eldest son Jack took his first steps. It's where I visited with friends who are no longer with us. It's where I can think and breath and create. That's why I want to share it with you. The recipe for an unforgettable workshop: an absolute overload of gorgeous, locally grown flowers, a newly rennovated historic home, friends, good food, and a boatload of information.
