Florists’ Review Magazine has been a mainstay in the floral industry for over 100 years, reporting on everything from business to marketing strategies, to design trends. I’ve been flipping through these pages for 20 years of my career.
So, when I found out the Mayesh Design Tour would be featured in this month’s issue, I was over the moon!
It turns out, we make an appearance on multiple pages!
The Mayesh Design Tour was listed as one of the Top 10 Florist Education Opportunities in the May issue.
To be named is a great honor.
You can view the full article here (May 2023).
One of the key points the article makes is that an investment in floral education can pay dividends back into your business when you choose the right one for you.
I couldn’t agree more!
So, if you haven’t checked it out yet, I will be traveling throughout the country with Mayesh Design Tour through the end of the year to host live in-person hands-on workshops.
I’ve partnered with Mayesh because of the opportunity to meet new students and teach my bouquet-making method and design process hands-on. This live interactive workshop is truly what I was craving over the last few years in the land of Zoom calls.
Why You Should Attend a Live Hands-On Mayesh Design Tour Workshop
Between color theory and design applications, we cover a lot of territory in one full day. Participants have full access to the Mayesh Design Color Bar to build bouquets, which are then professionally photographed with gorgeous headshots.
Participants get hands-on learning experience directly from me throughout the workshop. We work on practical and efficient strategies to develop unique color palettes and build beautiful hand-tied bouquets in minutes. Students take what they learn from these workshops and continue on to build bouquets and just about any other type of arrangement using my unique approach.
If you’re wondering… ”Is this the right workshop for me?”, here’s what I can tell you based on what this year’s participants have said:
Katrina Sherer, from Fiori Florals, describes her favorite hands-on lecture this way:
“The spiral technique was a game-changer! Amy taught it in a way that made it so simple! I’ve learned other designers’ styles but never continued to design using them because they were too complicated and not easy to replicate. Since watching the accompanying videos and attending the workshop, I’ve designed 20 bouquets in the spiral and have been able to teach my fellow coworkers!”
Morgan Aranda from Prema Designs explains her experience this way:
“My bouquet creation feels so solid and not scary anymore, my color theory knowledge has made my proposals soooooo much easier. I also do all the ordering for our company and the color theory knowledge will really help with substitutions.”
When asked, What the most helpful lecture during the workshop was, Nicole Gilbride of Beholden Blooms said:
“It came down to two things for me – what I thought I needed most going in was the physical movement of my hands and the clusters to get the hand-tied method down… but I was shocked by how valuable the color theory was. I was finally able to put words to why I love some of my designs and why sometimes I feel like things are just “off” for me. The color theory was the part I didn’t know I needed.”
From Cleveland and Pheonix to Houston, it’s been a privilege and experience traveling across the country teaching and working alongside so many fellow professionals who share the same passion. We have several more cities to go. Portland, Oregon, next stop.
Will I see you this year?
