DATE: SEPTEMBER 24-26, 2017

TIME: 9:00 AM - 6:30 PM 


We can't believe our great fortune! World renowned floral artist and teacher Gregor Lersch will return to Hope Flower Farm this fall and we hope you'll join us for 3 days of in-depth floral design instruction. Gregor will mesmerize you with his wealth of knowledge and his generous spirit. Learn his intricate mechanics and let him inspire you to see floral design from an artist's eye. We'll have plenty of hands-on design time in the beautiful Hope barn under the instruction of Gregor Lersch and Chapel Designers founder Holly Chapple. Learn how Holly's relationship with Gregor Lersch has advanced her abilities as an event designer by teaching her invaluable mechanics which she has incorporated into her 'Hollyish' aesthetic. To keep with the integrity of a Chapel Designer event, Holly will provide business coaching and Q&A time in the late afternoon each day. A professional photographer will be on hand to capture some of the pieces you create during the workshop. Perfect for adding to your portfolio!
