Event description

Description

Synopsis:
A walking tour of the Flower District, including the history of the floral industry in Los Angeles, tips for shopping in the markets all year round and fun facts about flowers around the globe. This will be followed by time for shopping and a class in seasonal arrangement techniques.

The class will focus on flowers and foliage that are in season right now. Arranging seasonally means that your house has a different look for every month of the year, AND local, seasonal flowers tend to be cheaper, last longer and often smell sweeter! Embrace the textures and rich colors of Fall while learning a new skill!

Event is limited to 10 guests. Sign up as soon as possible before the event sells out!!!


Meeting point:
Southern California Flower Market, rooftop parking level next to elevator 3. Parking lot access is on the east side of Maple Street between 7th and 8th.

Please aim to arrive at the market by 7:50 am, so that we can all go down the elevator together.


Cost:
The general admission ticket of $30 includes the tour, class instruction, and entry into the Flower market.

Plan to spend additional money on the flowers you select. These will be priced typically between around $3 - $12 per bunch, depending on type of flower. You will most likely want to allow between $20 and $70 total cost, depending on what you choose to use. The cost of flowers is not included in the general admission ticket. Cash is preferred by vendors, but credit card charges may require a minimum.

Please also bring a vase or other container of your choosing.

If you do not wish to carry the flowers/ foliage you select on the walk to the class location, you are welcome to bring a cart or wagon.
