1:1 Ponderosa Workshop





Katie invites you into her "creative home" for an intimate two day training in floral design and creative process.

You'll gain hands on experience in the specialties that you choose with the ability to work with gorgeous flowers grown locally.

Discuss all the nitty gritty business/marketing you've ever wondered about and ask all the questions you've been waiting to ask.

This is your time and we can't wait to create with you.
