Learn the ins and outs of selling, handling and designing wedding flowers.  Participants will discover how to sell wedding flowers, creating the “win/win” with clients.  We will cover floral care and handling materials and techniques that make flowers last.  Learn how to correctly execute hand-tied bouquets, save time with adhesive-mechanic corsages and boutonnieres, be creative with centerpieces and design a spectacular altar arrangement.  This class is outlined for those with very little, if any, professional wedding floral experience and those who aspire to sell wedding flowers at a profit.  Flower farmers are especially encouraged to attend.  Bring cut flower knife, wire cutters, ribbon shears, pruners.  Lunches included.
