Join us for a great afternoon or evening of flower design. The Sampler classes are for individuals who want to try out our school and go home with a wealth of knowledge about the world of flower designing. It’s three great projects covering American to European design.

By the end of the day, you will have created so many flower designs, you will practically need a shopping basket to take them all home with you! It’s a great introduction into the world of flower design. Learn some of the techniques with Michael Gaffney as taught on the Today Show.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this class. Michael exudes excellence. His assistant, Josh was very efficient. They were organized and professional. The class was prompt and ran like a well oiled machine. Listen, I learned more in 4 hours and walked away with 3 arrangements. I took an 8 hour course in December and walked away angry! Michael also interjected humor, while still being firm. Kudos! I look forward to taking the 101.
