The FIRST EVER #floristrycamp-I still can’t even believe it actually happened. It’s a passion project I dreamt up years ago and I’m so happy to finally get to share it with all of you.
There are few things I love more than being in nature, and of course flowers.
Floristry camp was sprung from the love of these two things and wanting to share in a sense of community and learning amongst them with others. I wanted to create a travel/ floral workshop, but more than anything I wanted it to be a retreat-like experience where people could come and re-connect with the outdoors, flowering, and each other. I can only hope the participants left this inaugural weekend with a deep breathe, a new sense of self, a fine-tuning of their floral skills and a big, old hug from mama nature.
Thank all the heavens for Renata Stone. Not only did she help me style the tables for this floristry camp, she kept me sane in the weeks leading up to it and photographed the entire thing like the story-telling photo queen that she is.
So many of you asked loads of questions about #floristrycamp, so I’ve created an FAQ at the bottom of this post for you to look over! We’ve added the dates for the next camp at Glacier Under Canvas to the “classes” section of our website. WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU THERE!
A HUGE thank you to all of the incredible vendors involved in this special weekend-love you all!
