The Garden Wall Floral Company is offering a new workshop series:

“Designing Wedding Flowers”

A hand’s on introduction class to wedding floral design

If you have an upcoming wedding in the future, and desire to design the flowers yourself, this class will benefit you. Or, if you have ever wanted to explore the floral business, this class will give you a start.

Designing Bridal and attendant bouquets, building corsages and boutonnieres, basic centerpiece design, flower girls headpieces, and floral design bows, will all be covered. ‘Hands-on’ technique will be used to ensure the student understands the mechanics necessary to create your own personal flair to you or your loved one’s upcoming wedding.

This series of classes will be taught by accredited designer, Colleen Marie, owner of the Garden wall floral company for 16 years. With over 35 years of professional floral experience, including 5 years at the Broadmoor Hotel as a floral consultant, Colleen Marie will guide you through the design and skills required in floral creation.

This is a four week workshop on Saturday’s, from 9:00 – 11:00 at the Garden Wall Floral Company’s studio in Penrose. Tea and light snacks will be served afterward on the patio (weather permitting) after class, where further questions and discussion are encouraged..

Price for the series is $295.00 including materials. Also included in this fee is a consultation to help you or your bride coordinate colors, choose appropriate flowers for the season, and answer any other questions or advise you may need. Upon completion of the course, a certificate will be given to each student awarding 8 hours of experience in basic wedding design.

The first series will begin Saturday, September 15th, and continue for the next three Saturdays.

The second series will begin Saturday, October 20th, and end on November 10th

Pre registration is required, and the class is limited to 5 students, so early registration is advised. 50% is required at the time of registration; the balance is due the date of the first class.
