Milwaukee a great place on a great lake with a great floral design school!

At the Milwaukee School of Flower Design, founded by celebrity florist, Michael Gaffney, their students learn a large variety of different design techniques during the 8 or 12 week semester. The Milwaukee School of Flower Design has been training students in the art of flower design for many years. Their former students are involved in all areas of floral design after graduating and the school’s methods of design take beginners to pro. The Milwaukee School of Flower Design is located inside a floral wholesaler that provides thousands of gorgeous flower stems every semester for the students to design with. A gorgeous mix of fresh flower and green materials are provided to the students during each day’s class (all materials are included with the tuition cost), as well as live demonstrations, a tour of the wholesale house and how to buy wholesale, instructor assistance and best of all, hands on designing by the students themselves. Michael Gaffney who has been featured on the The Morning Blend, Hallmark Channel, Today Show and Huffington Post states, “In my book Design Star, there are 100 tips to flower design, but in class there are 1000. Being in class and having that one-on-one access to an instructor is important to learning good design habits and techniques.”

Classes in Milwaukee are offered in the afternoon and evenings on Mondays and Wednesdays of each week. There’s plenty of free parking for our students. The school is located on 48th and State St. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. If you would like more information about classes, how to register, or want to experience a free class and get a feel for designing beautiful floral arrangements, please call 1-877-322-5666 today!
