What's Included

Installations have the ability to transform a space into an environment of our own creation; a windswept meadow, a barren desert, perhaps a moss and lichen filled forest. Imagination is our limit. Creating these scenes while finding sustainable solutions to toxic floral foam can be difficult and ultimately inconvenient (I’m not a purest by any means). Learn practical, useable examples in design, mechanics, and product that lends itself to foam-free natural installations.

  • What You'll Learn

    Learn Nicole's compositional approach to memorable, natural installations using floral foam-free techniques. Nicole will guide you through how she chooses product that lends itself to natural floristry while creating texture and movement in her work. Learn sustainable and reusable design and mechanics of large floral installations for weddings, events, and artist installs. In this course, Nicole will walk you through how she constructs a vertical wall gardens, suspended installation, ceremony arbor/chuppah, and growing garden. This course includes 4 video lessons with additional course material and companion PDF.

    Nicole's natural artistic eye and her firm grasp of the principles of design lend gravitas and insight to her teaching moments, and her ingenuity with mechanics is inspiring. Definitely learned more than I expected to from this short course! Would recommend to any florist who feels stuck in a rut when it comes to installation shapes, or is unsure about how to break up with foam. This is a gentle, do-able guide to alternative and very versatile techniques.
