The Sweet Woodruff Fall Flower Retreat is a chance to recharge your creative batteries, and escape to cottage country. It is flower immersion for flower enthusiasts, aspiring floral and event designers, or designers who simply want to improve their design skills, while surrounded by others who share a love of this industry.
Day 1: Connect Collaborate Create
Not only is this retreat an amazing chance to immerse yourself in your floral education, but a chance to connect with other kindred flower friends. Because there really is something so special about what we do and how much we love it, this 3 day retreat is a chance to embrace our passion and talk about our shared experiences.
On Day 1 of our flower retreat we will delve into smart business practices, building your brand, sourcing & finding the ideal client.
Day 2: Floral Design & Creative Projects
Retreat attendees will have the opportunity to learn from and work beside the Sweet Woodruff team, as we guide you through the world of floral design and styling with tutorials and hands on lessons.
On Day 2 of our floral retreat attendees will learn flower composition and design techniques for arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres using the most beautiful seasonal blooms, while gaining lots of hands on experience.
Day 3: Styling & Photo Shoot
This is may be the most beautiful time of year in northern Ontario, when the trees begin to change colours, the leaves start to fall and the hot hazy days of summer fade away. You can actually feel the seasons shift. It is the perfect time of year to capture our autumnal themed collaborative photo shoot set against the peaceful lakeside setting.
Our creative endeavour will be captured by the ever so talented, film photographer Reid Lambshead, of When He Found Her. These photos will then be yours to have in your portfolio and share on multiple social media platforms.
Investment: $1800 includes lodging, meals, transportation, fresh flowers, materials & digital photography files. 8 spots available.
Lodging: We will be staying at a charming lakeside cottage and in Minden Hills, Ontario surrounded by beautiful Northern Ontario wilderness (the perfect place for foraging!) Both shared rooms & individual rooms are available.
Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks will be provided
Transportation available to and from Minden Hills, departing from 1 of 2 locations: Fairview Mall in the north end of Toronto & Union Station in downtown Toronto
