"Spring is the time of plans and projects" once quoted Leo Tolstoy, and for people eager to unearth their creative side with a new project, Blooming Haus' brand new spring masterclass will do just that. Spear-headed by master florist Michal Kowalski and his business partner Michael Dariane, the masterclass will be the first of what will be a series of classes running throughout the year, with the first scheduled for May.
A contrast to the run-of-the-mill masterclasses, the spring class not only allows people to dip into the imaginative world of Blooming Haus' artistic creators, but with New Covent Garden Market just walking distance from the studio, the course will incorporate a morning at the UK's most famous wholesale floral market, providing people with a real immersive experience!
Dubbed floral engineers for their visionary creations, the duo will teach clients the dos and don'ts of purchasing flowers - paying special attention to the seasons and sustainability. Returning to the studio for coffee and pastries, people are then led through the steps of creating designs that are manageable, yet result in real show-stoppers!
Besides the pioneering and original designs that are created, one thing that is key in their work is their respect for the environment. Steering away from non-recyclable materials that are commonplace in the industry, the course will provide sustainable tips that will ensure budding floral designers can enjoy a guilt-free, eco-friendly hobby.
Priced at £150 per person, the Spring Masterclasses takes place on Friday 21st May, Friday 4th & Friday 18th June and includes the following:
