Chicago School of Flower Design Students & Graduates are busy Designing all over the “Windy City”

The Chicago School of Flower Design, is a great way to master the art of floral design! Founded by celebrity florist, Michael Gaffney, their students learn a large variety of different floral designs. Everything from traditional to contemporary design work is covered during their exciting 8- or 12-week semester. The school provides great training in the art of floral design and their students graduate with a portfolio of their design work. The Chicago School of Flower Design is located in the Kennicotts Floral Wholesale house. This allows our students to access the best flowers from around the world. Everything needed to train their students is located right at their fingertips. 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, flower market field trips, instructor assistance and best of all, hands on designing by the students themselves. Michael Gaffney who has been featured on the 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.”
