WORKSHOP WITH FIONA PICKLES OF FIRENZA FLOWERS

31st May 2017 12-4pm, NORTH YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND

A couple of years ago at a workshop I was a guest teacher at in England, I met Fiona Pickles.

Fiona and I instantly hit it off, and bonded over our love for large sprawling branches.

Fiona and I are excited to announce a class that we will be teaching together in just one month!

This will be a

A relaxed, half-day workshop on the flower farm of Holme Flowers where you will forage for dramatic branches, work with flowers grown on the farm and design your own giant urn after a light lunch under the apple trees in the orchard.

Holme Farm is a beautiful working farm run by three sisters, Wendy, Sue and Jayne and is located in a delightful and secluded hamlet in rural North Yorkshire.

This is a fabulous opportunity to meet and spend some time with Sarah.

I am so excited to announce that I have two new digital courses! I have partnered with if i made again to bring you two courses that are a wonderful follow up to the ones i released last year.

These bigger pieces are one of my favorite parts of the job, and in this course I share everything I know about them! You’ll learn about my inspiration for installations, my design and planning process, and all about the logistics of installation. This course has information for all level of florists, both beginners and those who are already experienced with installations. Head over to the course website to read more about whats included, the courses are on a special promotional price until midnight on March 16th where you’ll receive $200 off if you purchase the combo package that contains both courses. unspecified

 NEW DIGITAL COURSE AVAILABLE

04.27.16_NWFD_IPAD_LAYDOWN I have spent the last few years teaching just as much as i’ve been doing weddings, and I really love it. I love sharing what I love about flowers, how I work with them, and seeing that flower fire ignite in the people I am teaching. There really is nothing quite like finding your passion, and I feel so fortunate to have been able to work hard and turn mine into a career. In person workshops are wonderful, but they are also time consuming and expensive, making them available to only a small group of people. I am so excited to announce that I have just launched a digital course! I poured myself into writing this course, and am so thankful for the huge team of people that contributed to it. Because this option is much more affordable than attending a personal workshop, and you can do it on your own time, I hope I can reach a much bigger audience with this! Thank you to all of you for your interest in learning more about what I do! You can read more about the course and purchase it here.   04.27.16_NWFD_EMAIL_LAUNCH-2

This is priced per hour. Most consultations last about two hours. These consultations are for those designers who don’t want to focus on designing as much as they do on discussion about starting or perfecting their business.This is one-on-one appointment where we talk about your business is now, and where you want to take it. Each consultation is individualized to the person it is with, and our topics discussed are chosen just for you and your needs.We can have this in person, via skype, or over the phone. This is a great addition to one of my group classes if you want to learn a bit of design and have business discussion.We can cater this conversation to what you are looking for, but here are some common topics:-Attracting the right clients and beginning a relationship with them -Sourcing product that is unique and fits your aesthetic -Proposal writing -Contact with clients and planners, how I begin the design process with them. -Pricing, & contracts -Portfolio review and feedback on your current work and how it presents itselfI have had these meetings with many designers who have said that what they learned drastically changed how they operate their business. That the things they implemented after out meeting made an immediate difference in the clients they received and they way they are treated in the industry.I love the personal nature of these consultations and have so much fun following people’s success after we meet.TO SET UP A CONSULTATION WITH SARAH, EMAIL HER FLOWERS@SARAHWINWARD.COMPhoto by Kychelle Photography
