McQueens Flower School

One Day Installation Workshop

For those who are keen followers of McQueens Flower School, you will know that creating large-scale, dynamic floral installations is usually reserved for the final week of the Vocational Course. The exclusive nature of creating these art installations meant that the school was delighted to give a group of 10 prospective students back in January the opportunity to join the first-ever One Day Installation Workshop.
The hugely popular workshop attracted students with a plethora of reasons for joining, from independent florists keen to learn new concepts and techniques to advanced hobbyists eager to add to their floristry education. Led by McQueens Flower School Principal, Sophie Powell - the workshop distilled the most innovative installation trends and skills. often commissioned by discerning clients. Through brilliant teamwork, the group created a suspended floral masterpiece, complimented by a Dutch Masters-style tablescape. The other-worldly creation tapped into both botanical and painterly trends and crucially was constructed completely free from floral foam. Explaining the concept, Sophie based the design around statement ingredients, including bananas and tillandsia.
McQueens Flower School is renowned for not only creating a thorough and practical curriculum but introducing a plethora of creative and innovative concepts - across sustainability as well as design. Sophie explains;

“McQueens Flower has recently been awarded the Positive Luxury Butterfly Mark’ for making a substantial commitment to improving sustainable practice. This has always been an important part of the school’s curriculum, where we share ideas and techniques - particularly when it comes to going free of floral foam. We’re delighted to say that this course, in particular, will continue to be completely floral foam-free.”
The next One Day Installation Class takes place at our London-based flower school on Saturday 18th April - there are limited numbers on this course. Watch the film below of the most recent One Day Installation Workshop.
