The Career and Artistry Ponderosa Master Classes are designed as continuing education for the experienced florist who wants to dive deeper into the art of floral design, and become a designer that creates from the heart and soul, while maintaining a fulfilling career and sustainable business.

During these sessions we will teach you practical skills to grow as a florist and pursue your goals out of a place of love and internal confidence, instead of fear and comparison. We are excited to work with you to help you discover and uncover your very own artistic voice within the creative world!

"The goal is to be a designer that creates from the heart."
