Delve into the Elements of Floral Design - Beginners Series in a full day workshop with Urban Petals. This workshop includes seven hours of instruction and hands-on designing at Urban Petals Design Studio and will cover a wide variety of topics and skills needed to pursue either a career in floral design or hone your techniques as a hobbyist floral designer. Each of the Elements of Floral Design Workshops (beginners, intermediate, and advanced) will build upon the material presented in the previous course and we strongly recommend that you take the courses in order so that you may achieve the best long term results for your investment.
