PONDEROSA CLASSROOM ONLINE | Register Now
In 2019 Katie decided to open an online flower school focused on supportive, in-depth online education focused on the artistry as well as the proper mechanics and techniques needed to become a flower artist. For years Katie filmed and poured her 20+ years of flower knowledge and love into these videos, and the result is the Ponderosa Classroom Online.
The response has been incredible, with thousands of floral designers and creatives from across the globe registering for the Online Classroom, Katie's dream to teach everything she knows about flowers has come true. In this space she shares her heart, her go-to moves and very favorite things. She takes you "behind the scenes" and breaks down her thought process, taking time to explain in detail the things that just don't make it into a live session or social media post. We didn't have to put a time limit on these videos so they are jam packed with accessible and adaptable flower education geared for the gardener and the florist with the encouragement to "Go make something beautiful, go make a difference in this world, because we know you can!"
