When working with florals, what holds the flowers can often be overlooked. This Fall Master Class Series will focus on FlowerSchool Master Florists’ use of unique vessels in their floral designs.  In each class the Master Designer will feature a unique vessel specific to their vision and approach to flowers. They will each share how to design specifically for their vessel and how to incorporate the container into the whole design. This program is open to all levels. Beginners and professionals can both gain from working with these Master Designers.


After a demonstration and discussion, each student will create a beautiful floral arrangement using the curated container as inspiration. After designing, each student will have the opportunity to photograph their design in a still life setting created specifically for their program. 


All materials are provided and each student will take home the floral design and container to enjoy.

In this program, Emily Pinon will demonstrate how she incorporates the vessel size, color, texture and shape into her overall floral designs. Following a demonstration, each student will make their own masterpiece under the guidance of this esteemed designer. Do not miss this opportunity to expand your vision and create a contemporary floral arrangement with a Master Designer.
