Duration: 4 weeks


Whether you want to arrange flowers at home or are interested in becoming a professional floral designer, this class will give you a great foundation on the technical tricks of flower arranging as well as composition, color, and design. Chelsea will show you how to achieve effortless looking arrangements that have that just-picked-from-the-garden look. You’ll make a French hand-tied bouquet, a wild English garden arrangement, as well as a wedding bouquet and head wreath. Chelsea will share her tricks of the trade along with basics like the best time to pick flowers for cutting and tricks for helping them last longer. Chelsea will help give you the confidence to create your own flower arrangements for home or gifts or to pursue opportunities and further education in the floral industry.

Please note that you will need to have certain supplies to fully participate in this course:

— Fresh flowers each week to practice and complete homework assignments (for tips on sourcing flowers, read Chelsea’s blog here and here)

— Clippers (Chelsea recommends a few found here, here, here, and here)

Our platform has recently changed. We are excited that this new platform will bring us a better learning system, which is available online through your browser and it’s mobile friendly!

We are no longer offering set course dates. Instead, you will receive a link to view your class within 24 hours of your purchase. Now, you can begin your class almost immediately or whenever the time is right for you!
Learning is divided into 4 weeks and within those weeks you can learn at your own pace, anytime, anywhere. There are no set class times during the week, though homework is due every Sunday night for instructor feedback, if you choose to participate in that portion of the class. Students also have unlimited email access to the instructor for the duration of their course, to ask questions or get help when they’re stuck. Our classes are flexible, fit into most any schedule and you have extended access to the course material after the class is over! This allows you to reference back to things later when you need a memory refresher.
*It’s important to note that your 4 weeks of teacher access begin once you start watching the first video of Week 1 content. So be sure to start that first video when you’re ready to learn!


Floral Arranging 101 has no prerequisite courses or skills. This is a beginner friendly course! Feel free to drop Chelsea a line if you have any questions about taking this course!
