What you'll learn in this floral design class:

Join us for a great day of flower design. The Sampler course is for individuals who want to try out our school and go home with a wealth of knowledge about the world of flower designing. It’s three great projects covering American to European design. 

Michael Gaffney will be there to teach and also give you his book Design Star and autograph it for you. All your flowers and containers will be provided as well. In this class you learn how to keep flowers alive for weeks instead of days and everyone will go home with their three flower arrangements. 

By the end of the day, you will have created so many flower designs, you will practically need a shopping basket to take them all home with you! It’s a great introduction into the world of flower design. Learn some of the techniques with Michael Gaffney as taught on the Today Show.

Reviewed by Tracey W. on 9/14/2022
I am happy I found CourseHorse. I travel for work, am based for periods of times in different cities. I came across CourseHorse while looking for something to do on a free day in NYC. I found a floral design class. It was extremely easy to book and pay through CourseHorse and I enjoyed the class very much. Now I look at Course Horse whatever city to which I am traveling.

I loved that I got to bring home 3 different arrangements that I made and a beautiful book. However I felt the class was more about how much money the instructor made doing flower arrangements for weddings etc., and name dropping and all the money he made and how fabulous he is and did I mention all the money. I would do this class again but maybe with a different instructor.

I liked the class the teacher was helpful and showed and gave easy directions how to make floral arrangements. I think they needed to have better nippers to cut the flowers, with otherwise it was a fun class. Also I think the money situations should be taken care of in advance of the class, or at least in the beginning not after the instructor starts talking about the class

Michael Gaffney taught 3 different arrangements/techniques in one night very efficiently. Fun, fast-paced, low-key class. Beautiful results!

Loved the class. I can’t believe I made such beautiful arrangements. Definitely planning on taking the 3 day class next.
