The Business of Flowers KZN – 2018

The business of flowers KZN 2018 Fleurcollectiv

For people from PE/East London area – this is a blog post from a previous workshop I have run in KZN to give you an idea of what it is like.

If there is enough interest – I need at least 12 – 15 serious attendees, I will put the workshop on at the end of August, beginning of September.

Suggested itinerary to include

  • pricing and valuing your business
  • hand tied bridal bouquets including the egg method
  • Basic designs with flower glue – corsages, buttonholes, flower crowns
  • Foam free compotes, and other designs
  • Others?

These opportunities are also incredible for networking and meeting other people in your area in a safe environment.

I expect the price will be between R5000 and R5500 per person for 2 days, incl of all flowers/materials, printed notes and refreshments.

Excl tools/apron/accomodation.

please email me at coral@eflowerstudio.co.za to express interest if you are VERY serious and can afford the fee and as soon as I have enough, I will confirm a date and topics.

 

FROM MY KZN WORKSHOP LAST YEAR

Teaching other people what I know about flowers and mechanics and the business of flowers is an incredibly humbling experience for me.

I have 12 years of industry experience, both in retail floristry and event floristry and have run 3 separate floral design businesses over the past 12 years. I annually attend a workshop with a master florist and teacher if possible, to keep expanding my skill set, develop my knowledge and to just learn and enjoy the company of other beautiful flower people.

This was my second 2 day workshop in KZN at the beautiful Talloula’s in Botha’s Hill – not only are Glynnis and her team incredibly hospitable, they serve DELICIOUS food and it is just a lovely relaxing environment in which to immerse oneself in the joy of learning about your passion.

We had fabulous attendees who all shared so much as well and we made some beautiful things together. Thank you to all of you for your trust in these events – it means the world to me and I love seeing how the fleurcollectiv network is growing as a result.
