We kick-started our 2017 with a three day floral entrepreneur workshop. With our new creative journey ahead, we had no other choice, but to work in a fabulous festive workshop for all our floral designers.

A Social Feast

Our guests were welcomed to the workshop with a festive floral feast. We provided the opportunity for all the guests to introduce themselves and socialise, before getting down to business. Two Chefs created a floral inspired four course meal beautiful enough to be showcased at an art exhibition, whilst all the guests dressed up in their most charming floral outfits. Everyone was ready for their floral journey to take off.

Class is in Session!

We made sure that our sessions provided a wide variety of information critical to running your own flower business. Other than our two fantastic practical sessions, we had speakers cover the legal aspects of owning a business, SARS necessities, branding, as well as styled shoots. It was such an amazing opportunity, because we were able to learn from experienced leaders in the various areas of owning your own florist business. Established florists got some new inspiration, and practical advice, whilst aspiring florists had the chance to learn what it takes to become a floral designer.

The Floral Guests

Flower workshop with The Styling Shed

We had the most amazing group of, both, aspiring and established florists with us. It turned out to be much more than just a learning experience, but also a chance to take a break from a jam-packed schedule, and share thoughts and ideas with people from the same industry.

We are so privileged to have had the opportunity to meet all these wonderful floral entrepreneurs, and it was such a fantastic experience for The Styling Shed’s very first 2017 workshop.
