‘Contemporary Vessel Study’ with Master Florist Olivier Giugni of L’Olivier: Tuesday, October 29th (6pm – 8pm)

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.

Olivier Giugni started the trend of twisting, shaping and transforming leaves as a major design element in his floral creations when he first came to New York to work for Pierre Cardin at Maxim’s of Paris. Florist extraordinaire and author of the book, “Living Art – Style Your Home With Flowers” Giugni is the innovator of the leaf-wrapped container.  In this class, students will learn Olivier’s signature style of expertly intertwining carefully selected leaves with branches and flowers to make a dramatic statement. Each student will take home the beautiful, architectural design they make in class with this Master Designer.
