remember little flower school?

I barely do! Nicolette and I have both had tumultuous schedules this summer, and we've taken a hiatus from teaching flower arranging classes.

But school's about to be back in session - we've got a class up at the NYBG next Sunday that will be a divine romp through their perennial gardens followed by a hands-on floral class. A few spots left if you'd like to consider...sign up info is here.

Also, there are two new classes being released soon so stay tuned to the LFS blog for that.

Going forward we've been thinking about ways to change the format of the classes in order to keep things interesting, if anyone has any suggestions or requests, I would really love to hear them. One idea we had (besides taking classes to Tuscany) is to make a series of symposiums where we colaborate with other floral/botany experts to teach joint classes. I love any opportunity to cross pollinate...

I love that idea! I'd come back up from Kentucky for that! The flower class I took with you all back in March was so great! Really got my little business up and going! So thankful for it!!

I would kill for a full day wedding 101 class!!!

How about a class in Australia??!

Da folks want a wedding class! You could offer say, a bridal bouquet, bout/corsage and centerpiece in a full day seminar. Easy peazy, lemon squeezy, right? Me? I want a SCHOOL. Not just a class. THINK BIG, Ladies. I'm all over that...

I have an idea - talk LFS on the road! Spend a weekend on my farm, here in the Pacific Northwest (15 minutes from a city centre), and take over the house / studio! I also agree with Erin @ Floret - wedding flowers 101 is brilliant. Would also kill for the option to sign up for a live webstream given how far away I am from NYC.

So hoping to be able to take one of your classes one day.

Such great ideas already! Better yet how about a live webstream school that includes a wedding lesson. Yup, I would do that in a heartbeat.

(I took one of your classes when you two were in the west coast. It was an experience that I will never ever forget.)
