Workshops

For over 25 years the focus of Pat's business has been designing for weddings and events, and she is now happy to bring her knowledge and experience to her floral workshops. These classes bring together her love of flowers and her natural flair for teaching in a relaxed, fun atmosphere that's perfect for learning.

The Art of the Bouquet Workshops:
Join Pat in this floral extravaganza and learn how to design your own floral arrangements. This three-hour workshop will teach you the principals of flower design, including how to select and care for your flowers and how to "build a bouquet," creating the look you want with color and texture. It begins with a dynamic demonstration of several creative design styles, after which you will design your own vase bouquet. This workshop is also available as a one and a half hour demonstration. Please contact Pat Gibbons for upcoming workshops.

On-Line Classes:
Not in the area? Please join me for my on-line classes! These informative, on-line classes will teach you how to create beautiful arrangements. The first class is complimentary and each successive class will focus on a specific design concept, teaching you ‘how to build a bouquet,’ how to use color and texture, and how to create a variety of styles. At the end of the series, you’ll have the knowledge on how to create a wide range of design styles. This is a new series and additional classes will be uploaded in the near future. Sign-up for a class.
