NYC Floral Design Classes – Ovando

west village nyc new york floral design classes florist education school

Monthly floral design classes are continuing to be held at West-Village based boutique Ovando.  Owned by Sandra de Ovando, who boasts many high profile fashion industry clients, the classes offer participants a peek inside the world of floral design.  Each of theirsingle-session classes will discuss varying themes and design principles, as well as some of the modern design philosophies which define the shop’s signature style.

Here’s what one former student had to say of the experience

Flowers are my passion. I’ve loved the monthly classes at Ovando. The classes are lively, small, participatory, fun, challenging and fly by in what feels like seconds. The gift, in addition to the incredible experience, is that we each leave with our Ovando creation, and the experience lives on in our homes until next time!

The $250 class fee includes beverages, snacks, and all necessary supplies, plus your take home creation.

The class location is 120 West 28th Street, 2nd Floor, NYC 10001, and the schedule is after the jump, or here

Also had to post these two Ovando creations – an avant-garde bridal bouquet, and a DREAM tablescape (p.s. I take back anything rude I ever said about Gerberas ; )!
