A mindset of “being present” helped Alison Powell Louwe to discover her love for floral design and to create her floral therapy workshops. 

“They are centered around sharing a mindful approach to floral design,” says the owner of Powell Floral. “We do this by educating our students about using local in-season botanicals and encouraging our attendees to design with a playful, judgment-free mindset.”

Workshop topics include supporting local farmers, ethical foraging, design techniques, natural dyeing as well as seasonal flower arrangement classes.

“My hope is that students leave feeling encouraged to take inspiration from the changing seasons — and to design flowers with joy.”

Upcoming Workshop for Mother’s Day 2022:

Hand-tied Spring Bouquet Workshop – Create a lush hand-tied bouquet using seasonal spring flowers grown by local growers.
