Flower Workshop In Beautiful Boone, North Carolina

Mar 28, 2014


  Kelly Perry of Philosophy Flowers and Heather Payne of Heather Payne Photography reached out to me with an invitation for my readers to come create with them in person in the beautiful mountains of Boone, Carolina.  Kelly studied to be a teacher in college and this workshop brings together three
things she is very passionate about — flowers, people and education.


During the flower workshop on May 18th-20th, attendees will sample hundreds of spring flowers and get hands-on instruction in building arrangements and perfecting them for the camera.  Students will create individual pieces that will be shot by Heather on film for personal portfolios and the class will
come together as “Team Flower” to create a stunning group editorial piece! Kelly has also booked some amazing guest speakers who will share apps to help you maximize your business, wardrobe essentials for the modern florist, tips on styling to sell and getting your work published, and quick culinary delights for the times you’re so busy petal pushing that you don’t have time to eat!


I love that Kelly has planned a thoughtful, inclusive workshop that will teach students
practical floral design skills and keys to building a strong business. Hope you’ll consider taking advantage of this opportunity. There are only a few seats left! Learn more about the itinerary by visiting or email Kelly directly at to reserve your space.  Please inquire by April 1st!
