1-Day Workshop | Floral Art with Mixed Media: An innovative approach to floral design

*Price includes a $90 Studio Fee for all materials provided.


Class Description:

This class uses inspiration from the DAM’s artworks on view to inspire contemporary floral design. The approach is very out-of-the-box: breaking down an existing artwork into shapes and colors, then recreating a mixed media 3D version with fresh floral elements. Students will learn flower care and handling, as well as the mechanics and various applicable philosophies of floral design. This class is suitable to beginners or advanced floral designers.


What to Expect:

Pulling inspiration from the DAM's collections, students will create collages interpreting artworks for form and color. Next, students will be use wire, middollino and yarn to create flexible armatures as

bases to add our fresh materials to. Lastly, students will use their collages as a map of placement, form, and line for our finished floral designs.


Class Cancellation Policy:

If a class or workshop needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather or teacher illness, a “make-up” day will be scheduled on a FRIDAY or SATURDAY as the educator’s schedule allows.



All materials will be provided by the teacher and are included in the price for this workshop.
