The second annual Whidbey Flower Workshop is a masterclass flower retreat that will focus on inspiring creativity while enriching knowledge of mechanics.  Escape to Whidbey Island and recharge your creative juices as well as your business!

Come cultivate your creativity and stock your toolbox with a range of foam-free mechanics.  This year we will explore our floral fantasies with internationally acclaimed floral designers Susan McLeary of Passionflower Events and Joseph Massie.  Like frosting on a fabulous cake, our session will kick off with a visit from Debra Prinzing of Slow Flowers.  The uber-talented photographer Heather Saunders will capture your creations for your portfolio use.

Join us in the magical Pacific NW forest for this 3-day slumber party that will be jam-packed with floral fun.  Create fantasy-based floral wearables (none of your average corsages here!) and explore a variety of large-scale installation mechanics.  During the course of the workshop we will also discuss sourcing, pricing, creative challenges, staying renewed and inspired, working with your farmer, and more.  Each student will have hands-on experience building their own wearables, and working as part of a team on our floral installations.  All work will be professionally photographed by Heather, using professional models.  Photos will be shared with students for use in their portfolios, websites, branding etc.  We will work with only the most luscious flowers, focusing on locally-sourced and American grown, including lots of spring treasures grown right here on Whidbey Island.

Price is $2900.  This includes all meals, snacks, lodging, materials and instructors.  All you need is yourself, your tools, and some comfy clothes!
