Fleur Workshop: My Bloody Valentine

  • Fleur, Inc

Deep crimson. Blood red. True love is the inspiration for this special Valentine’s Day workshop. Let’s make something sexy.

Join us for an all-levels course focusing on organic technique and composition. We’ll let the flowers be themselves. Respect every curve, celebrate every stem, and watch a true love story unfold.

The cost per student is $150 and we’ll focus on the fundamentals of professional centerpiece design, using decadent blooms (garden roses, ranunculus, anemones, and more) in a blood-red palette that will elevate heart rates for a week to come after you take your arrangement home.

You’ll receive all the tools and materials you’ll need, including a gorgeous vessel, rich flowers, and of course knowledge. Plus, we want to make it even more special for you…

The talented mixologists from Longman and Eagle will get the workshop started off by opening up those blood vessels with a custom cocktail lesson in triplicate – A Toast, Yours & Mine, and A Cocktail Built for Two. And let’s not forget our blood sugar! Katherine Anne Confections will tickle your tastebuds with truffles and caramel.

Fleur Workshop: Living Wall Hanging

Winter has come—and with a vengeance. These next few months are the tough ones, with icy temperatures and shorter, darker days. Now is the time for staying inside, crafting and making! Especially when it comes to making something that will live, thrive, and beautify your home well after the frost melts and spring has sprung.

Join us for a rare after-hours class on Thursday, January 28th, from 7 pm - 8:30 pm. The cost is $125 per student, and together we’ll make unique living wall hangings using air plants and branches.

We will teach you about air plants: fascinating and low-maintenance perennials, which look gorgeous and need no soil to survive. You’ll receive all the necessary materials, including branches to shape and bind into your own custom wall hanging, and a variety of air plants in different color tones, shapes and sizes, from the tillandsia family.

FLEUR WORKSHOPS: Weaving & Floral Holiday Gift Accents

The leaves turned from summer green to fiery rust, then they fell. We turned our clocks back. The sun is setting earlier, and temperatures are getting brisker by the day. Here at Fleur, these changes point to one glorious thing: the holidays are coming! We love this season so much, for so many reasons – not the least of which, you might guess, are decorating and gift giving. So let’s celebrate together!

Please join the Fleur team along with Gather Handwoven for a one-of-a-kind collaboration workshop on Sunday, December 6th from noon to 2 pm, centered around custom gift wrapping accents and holiday home decor.

The first portion of the workshop will be dedicated to weaving. Gather has ordered custom miniature looms (yours to keep!) and will lead the class in making miniature handmade weavings that can be used as gifts, special gift packaging accents, ornaments and home décor.

After a brief break for pie from Bang Bang (and holiday champagne punch!), we’ll shift to floral design. The Fleur team will teach you how to make a gorgeous and fragrant eucalyptus, herb and citrus wreath for your home, along with a miniature one to use as a gift packaging accent.

Celebrate the start of the season with us – sign up today! The price per guest is $200, and space is limited to 12 students. Sign up in an instant here.
