Virtual Workshop: Hand-Tied Bouquet (Flowers delivered to your door)
We are very excited to announce that we can now teach you the "Wild North Way" from the comfort of your own home, any day of the week - you choose the delivery day and we’ll send you everything you need!
Using a wide variety of local flowers we will show you, step-by-step, how to create an organic and whimsical hand-tied bouquet. This is a front-facing bouquet designed entirely in your hand! Our design will focus on the best of what is in season, as always, using all Ontario-grown blooms. By way of pre-recorded video, one of our designers will walk you through the process of making one of our classic Wild North Hand-Tied Bouquets ($100 retail value). They will lead you through: the basics of proper flower care, how we’ve selected your blooms, the "purpose" or function of each type of bloom, and how to arrange them in a garden-style that is natural and unfussy.
Main Teaching Points:
How to prepare your greens
Choosing a nuanced and impactful colour palette
How to hold and handle your bouquet
How to build a hand-tied arrangement from greening, to flowering to final touches
Key florals and their roles
How to balance delicate and whimsical flowers within an impactful design style and how to keep them safe
Participants without any floral experience are suggested to take our Tall Glass Vase Workshop before joining our hand-tied workshop. This workshop is slightly more advanced.
HOW IT WORKS:
A bucket of flowers & greenery will be delivered to your home between 1:00 - 6:30PM on the day of your choice.
You will be emailed a link to our pre-recorded instructional video. (If you are purchasing this item as a gift and would like us to send the email directly to the recipient, please include their email address in the delivery instructions at checkout)
You will also be emailed our step-by-step instructional PDF.
What we will send you:
A great selection of seasonal flowers (you can select a soft or bright colour palette)
A variety of greenery
A bucket that, once you've filled with clean water, you can unpack, freshly snip and keep your blooms in while you're designing
An email with the workshop video link, and instructions on how to prep your area and unpack your goodies
A detailed step-by-step design PDF which we encourage you to read first as it may make your workshop experience much easier! Feel free to print it out, and/or hang on to it to create more masterpieces in the future
A vase to place your bouquet in
Optional: If you do not have floral clippers at home, we strongly recommend adding some to your order!
The workshop will be pre-recorded so that you can view it at your own leisure; create alongside us, pause when you need to, or complete it after you've watched the whole video. It is entirely up to you. Though we do encourage you to complete the workshop within 24-36 hours of receiving your florals so they are super fresh!
Your flowers will be delivered in a bucket of water between 1:00PM - 6:30PM on the day of your choice! Won't be home? Just leave us instructions at check-out on where to leave your blooms. Ideally they should be freshly snipped and placed in new water as soon as possible, but can sustain for 12+ hours in their original bucket.
Because we work with all seasonal and local product, you will very likely have different flowers and a different colour palette than shown in the video - that's okay! The flowers we send you will function in the same way as those used in the video, and we go over how to use them in the step-by-step PDF guide you will be emailed.
Keep in mind floral designing can get messy! This means water spills, and greens and stems all over the floor. Make sure you set up in a space away from major electronics and to keep your laptop elevated.
Once your one-of-a-kind creation is complete, feel free to send us some photos, or post it on social media and use the tag (#MYwildnorthflowers).
