As February starts winding down we are getting closer to our workshop, the Flower Freelance Intensive. We wanted to take some time to look back on last year, and show a little behind the scenes for anyone who is thinking about joining us this season. The Flower Freelance Intensive is appropriate for those with and without prior floral experience, and is the perfect workshop to help build a strong foundation or further hone in your skills. The 2019 Flower Freelance Intensive will be an 8 day course held from April 8th through April 14th at our studio in Laytonsville, Maryland.
