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.
