Have you ever seen a beautiful wreath in someone's home or displayed in a store and said to yourself "I wish I could make that"? Well guess what, we are here to show you how! During our 3-day workshop, I will be spending time with you live inside a private Facebook Group. I will be instructing you on the tools and basic fundamentals of wreath making. Don't worry if you are unable to attend the live, you will be able to watch the replay inside the group (replays will be available for 2 weeks following the workshop).
This is what you can expect to learn during the three day workshop...

One of the best things you can do is to invest in the proper floral design tools and supplies.
