from garden to vase
Our classes focus on the artistic and mechanical techniques for creating lush, organically-styled arrangements, along with the essentials of organic flower farming.
Our design instruction encompasses composition, colour theory and how to work without floral foam. Our garden instruction varies depending on the time of year but typically touches on planning, plant selection and maintenance, and harvesting.
Regardless of the time of year, we will work the best of what the season has to offer, including locally grown flowers from our farm, foraged material from nearby forests and fields, and select material from nearby farms.
Private classes are available; either one-on-one or for a group. Have an idea or request for a class you’d like us to offer? Just drop us a line and let us know.
All classes will be held at Red Damsel Farm. 5480 W. Saanich Rd. Victoria.
Class size is limited to 6.
The class fee includes all supplies and refreshments, including a seasonal cocktail, and handouts and resources.
All student work will be photographed.
