Teaching in China

Twice in 2014 I had the opportunity to go to China and teach a Natural Style Flower Design Course at Cohim school. I absolutely loved the experience, these photos are from the six day course I taught there in April.

We had a plethora of Spring blooms work with from the Beijing Flower market, and we had so much fun with them. I had the most amazing group of students, most were new to floral design, so I was able to watch them find their passion and help them along the way. . Six days is a long time to be with once group of students, and first I was feeling overwhelmed, but I loved the time to get to know each designer and feel their passion for creating radiate from them.

I had the most incredible translator, Zoey, who made my teaching experience what it was. She was a great friend and made me feel comfortable in a different country and in front of twenty strangers. She helped me purchase the flowers every morning, and was able to translate all of the crazy flower jargon without skipping a beat. She has the most beautiful, sweet presence, and I know she was a huge factor in the course being so successful.

Cohim is a great resource for creatives in China, they have lots of courses in the arts and truly care about each of their student’s success.

I spent a month in China exploring the beautiful country after I taught and I treasure my time there.

Indigo shoot

I got to collaborate with a great group of people this summer on this little shoot that took influence from indigo. I am partial to darker, moody flower photos so this shoot felt juuuust right to me.

Centerpiece class

This is some of the beautiful work that was created in my one day intensive vased arrangements course. These are these centerpieces and smaller arrangements that we created to make a linear tablescape. I am offering another one of these courses this spring! See options here.

TThanks to Heather Nan for these beautiful, rich photos.

Bouquet class

I had so much fun at the bouquet class last August. We had a wonderful group of florists attending and they made some stunning pieces, we worked with some mauve and carmel colored roses, foxglove, sweet pea, and a plethora of wild summer greens. Thank you to everyone who came out, I love meeting you and creating things together!

I have announced some new classes for this Spring! You can find them at: www.sarahwinward.bigcartel.com. These classes make wonderful gifts for beginning florists, or your flower loving friends and mothers!
