Our Advanced Wedding Series focuses on advanced skills for the wedding market. It presupposes knowledge of certain techniques such as proper flower processing, basic arranging and familiarity with the florist’s knife, as gained through FSLA’s Intensive Series. The Wedding Series includes step-by-step instruction of five wedding-specific design skills including: handwiring individual flowers for boutonnieres and head wreaths; large scale designs for ceremony decor; elevated centerpiece designs for the reception and the decoration of a Chuppah and flowering arch. Our students walk away form The Advanced Wedding Series with a great understanding of the most important wedding mechanics and designs!
Summer Robbins will be our guest instructor for the November 12th & 13th & January 28th & 29th programs.
In this three-day course, students will learn the full process of creating the overall event design for a special event with a wedding as the sample. Beginning with making storyboards, students will receive instruction on conducting consultations and creating proposals, learning how to purchase floral products and then creating the mock-execution of the event’s designs. Each student is required to develop their own floral designs based on specific client requests. The course finishes with a mockup table decor and presentation to the “client.” This is a great opportunity for florists and event planners to practice event production with the constraints of specific client requests and budgets.
This course is taught by the talented FlowerSchool staff designers and instructors in conjunction with some of the most accomplished designers in the Wedding and Events industry in the Los Angeles area and beyond. The class includes a guided buying trip to the Los Angeles Flower Market. We encourage (but do not require) students to bring a laptop or tablet so that they may compile images and information digitally to create storyboards and proposals for their “client.”
Photographs of floral designs can often be the only record of a beautiful design. This workshop will give the students the opportunity to understand how cameras work and how to get professional results with their cameras using basic photography principals such as depth of field, shutter speed, ISO and color balance. Following the photography portion of the class, students will discuss the best methods to reach an audience and how to build a brand via content marketing tactics.
