‘Contemporary Vessel Study’ with Master Florist Taylor Patterson of Fox Fodder Farm: Tuesday, November 12th (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.


Taylor Patterson of Fox Fodder Farm is celebrated for her striking, deliberate use of color and texture. She notably creates designs specifically for the spaces where they will live. In this program, Taylor will demonstrate how she incorporates the vessel size, color, texture and shape into her overall floral design, as she does regularly for weekly clients such as Ulla Johnson and Hotel Delmano.  Following her demonstration, each student will make their own masterpiece with Taylor’s guidance. Do not miss this opportunity to expand your vision and create a contemporary floral arrangement with this Master Designer.














Raised in Brandywine Valley, Delaware, Taylor Patterson, founder and creative director of Fox Fodder Farm, drew on her own childhood home and memories to instill the company with a sense of nostalgia that it aims to capture in all of its endeavors. “There is definitely a certain level of sentimentality that I push for in our work, that sense of nostalgia for a time or place.”

Named “One of Six Florists to Keep on Call” by Vogue Magazine as well as Top Floral Designer by Martha Stewart, Fox Fodder Farm’s work has been featured in a number of publications including Goop, Design Sponge and Refinery29.
