I really enjoy Megan’s fun classes, meeting cool people and coming home with my very own master pieces over the past 4 years. Look forward to your next class. Thanks Megan 😀

One on One Flower Class

Our one-on-one flower class covers: learning correct techniques and grammar from the floral industry. In the first one-on-one session you will learn the basics of wrapping a single flower (the importance of scale and proportion, space and tying correctly), wrapping a plant (again scale and proportion, originality and flair and balance) and lastly you will learn how to spiral correctly. Once you have discovered the art of spiraling, you can continue to practice at home – you will be thrilled with the result.

Most of these classes are run on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Being based in Wellington, upstairs at Central Flower Wholesaler, location could not be better.

Just had the most amazing floral class with Megan. I booked a one on one session to get some help with assembling hand held bouquets and came away not only being more confident with putting these together but also getting confirmation that the preparation for the floral arrangements I had been doing for a few years were following good basic practice. Megan is so easy to talk to and passionate about sharing her knowledge with others. This session was one of the best things I have ever signed up for and won’t be the last.

Thank you Megan for today, the session was fantastic. I learn’t so much in the time we spent with you. Was a fun day and we were both so pleased we attended your class. The flowers were beautiful and it was lovely to take our creations home. Thanks again.

Megan has a calm and logical method of teaching that truly connected and inspired us. It has given us both great confidence to try new designs and techniques. We found the experience very rewarding and had an absolute blast with her! Can’t recommend Megan enough for anyone wanting to learn floristry.
April and Sarah, Stratford – July 2017

I cannot praise Megan enough! Her knowledge of floristry is second to none so to know that I am being taught by the best is unbelievably reassuring. I approached Megan with no floristry experience whatsoever but I now have a solid groundwork of skills that I can transfer and build upon. Megan never lost patience with me and made learning the art of floristry both relaxing and fun. Her one-on-one lessons are a superb way of getting some intense tailored training and working on the areas which you feel need the most attention. Floristry is something that I had always wanted to do but had delayed for so long. After lessons with Megan it’s now a passion and I work in the floristry industry. I have Megan to thank for that and I couldn’t be more grateful.

I had a lovely time learning about flowers/floristry at Megan’s classes. I left the 12 week course with a good fundamental knowledge for progressing my career in the flower industry. Megan goes above and beyond to make sure the classes run smoothly and was more than happy to pass on her knowledge – she really knows her stuff.
Emma, Christchurch – July 2019
The Comprehensive Professional Flower Class taught by Megan Parker, Wild About Flowers, over twelve weeks was beyond my expectations. I learnt about the elements and principles of floristry design, and practiced with fresh flowers and foliage every week. I learnt new flower design techniques, handling/storing methods all of which challenged and excited me. I loved the weekly study, it kept me focused for the next week’s topic and I learnt so much. I cannot recommend Megan Parker and the Comprehensive Professional Flower Class course enough.
Erin, Wellington – May 2019
Thank you so much for all your help. Doing your Comprehensive Level 3 floristry training makes such a difference to me and my business, and I have the added benefit of your ongoing amazing help, expertise and products alongside me!! You are a brilliant mentor.

Thought you’d appreciate an update I have accepted a job as a stewardess on a super yacht. I fly to Palma on the 25th to join them. Thanks so much Megan for helping me to get this job, through your wonderful course. I am very excited to pack all my materials and tools.

Alice, Wellington – September 2018

Megan, you have been an amazing tutor to us all and I really appreciated being able to do and finish the course.

Liz, Levin – August 2018

I am thoroughly enjoying Megan’s class. Her competence in Floristry and her commitment to teaching shine through all aspects of the class and there is no skimping on materials. We are learning proper and solid foundation skills, which is so important to produce quality work. I am really looking forward to the classes every week and can only recommend this course.

Daniele, Wellington – August 2017

Megan is a kind, caring, loving lady who will welcome you with open arms and make you feel comfortable no matter how little you know about floristry. I honestly look forward every week to my Sunday mornings in her class, it’s fun and hands on and it teaches you everything you need to know for a good basis to grow on. Megan teaches you proper skills, techniques, concepts and how to express our originality and flair. Her love and passion for floristry is infectious. I would truly recommend this course to anyone interested in floristry and wanting to learn more.

Did you know?

Flowers

Did you know, when picking flowers and foliage’s from the garden there are some great little tricks that you can do to make them last longer.

Both flowers and foliage require water to keep them alive, therefore if you are picking from the garden it is best to walk around with a bucket of luke warm water; as soon as you pick your product strip any leaves off that will go below the water line, then place your flowers and foliage directly into the bucket of luke warm water.

Did you know that the best time to pick flowers and foliage’s is early in the morning or late in the evening, when it is cooler, this reduces the dehydration of the flowers and foliage and helps them hydrate sooner.

Did you know many flowers and foliage’s also drink through their heads, if you are picking violets from a garden once you have bundled them up with a little tie, you can spray their heads with a fine mist of fresh water, or dunk them upside down for a few minutes before placing their cut stems in water. Hydrangeas are the same, sometimes their heads can become a little soft, turn the hydrangea upside down in a bucket of water for about 10 minutes, when you turn them back up the right way, recut the stem on a 45 degree angle and place them back in water.
