Gudrun Cottenier, founder and owner of the largest private flower
school in Belgium will lead two private workshops on European
floral design. You will see Gudrun create many new designs
for table décor and the holidays. You will also participate in a
hands on workshop creating European style tables designs and
arrangements. Gudrun is a beautiful designer who incorporates
natural elements into her work. All levels of floral designers will
learn new techniques and design inspiration from Gudrun who is
a masterful teacher.

We will begin the day with a behind-the-scenes tour of Cut
Flower Wholesale given by the owners. We will then proceed to
a demonstration and workshop at the Faith Flowers Studio. This
class includes a catered lunch.

Gudrun’s school in Belgium:

"I loved [Gudrun] for so many reasons, firstly she is a remarkable wife and mother, more remarkable than I can ever share. I loved her home based design studio, and I loved her very creative mind. Gudrun can and does make anything and everything beautiful. She is constantly inventing new creations by recycling the most basic of things…” –Holly Chapple

Holly Chapple’s website:

"You will appreciate Holly’s skill, heart and honesty…and learn so much from the experiences she so generously shares. You will be inspired by her dedication to the floral design profession, her constant mentoring of fellow designers and her ability to balance being a wife and mother (of 7) with growing a floral design business.” –me!


Hope some of you can make one or both of these classes…email me if you have questions.

And now, because we can’t go a day without flowers…keep reading….I actually wrote two posts today. For all you coral lovers…
