Here at Alexandra Atkelsky Events we are passionate about design, executing distinguished events, working with gorgeous flowers and simply creating beauty. Our greatest passion, however, is working with people. We love encouraging people, listening to their hopes and dreams, and then empowering them to find tangible ways to achieve those dreams by sharing our experiences and knowledge.
This is the passion and purpose behind the Alexandra Atkelsky Events workshop.
People come, and they leave changed
We have many people attend who have never worked with flowers before, and they leave knowing how to create something beautiful. Others who have been in the industry for years leave with a renewed vision and passion for their art. Individuals who didn’t think it was possible to start their own company left with a plan in place to start heading down the road of pursuing their passion. People felt released to dream big and believe anything can be accomplished. People felt empowered. Everyone leaves with new life long friendships and a community of support.
These workshops are for everyone and all are invited and encouraged to attend!
Our studio will be a warm and welcoming environment perfect for learning together.
No prior experience required.
This is a hands on, action packed workshop created for the individual who wants to focus on floral design, and learn how to create beautiful arrangements. We will instruct on how to order and care for flowers in addition to teaching the mechanics behind how we build our signature lush and organic centerpieces, bouquets and arrangements. We will fill the studio with a sea of the freshest seasonal flowers available and spend each day doing hands on learning. We will also discuss sourcing beautiful product, ribbons, fabrics, vases, supplies and other materials. Additionally, each workshop will also talk through business strategy and how to grow your business through branding, social media and published work so you can land your ideal client and increase your revenue. Students will walk away with images of their work for portfolio and promotional use.
A beautifully designed event goes beyond a pretty flower centerpiece, and involves layers of textures and elements to make that event come to life. We will explore all of those elements and reveal the steps we take to design a cohesive event from start to finish. Each student will have hands on experience with building centerpieces, bouquets and large scale event installations. Students will be divided into teams and will work together within that team to create a distinctive photo shoot that incorporates the different layers of event design. The photos from this photo shoot can be used to create a website, high end branding and a showcase portfolio. We will also discuss sourcing beautiful product, ribbons, fabrics, vases, supplies and other materials. Additionally, we will talk through business strategy and how to grow your business through branding, social media and published work so you can land your ideal client and increase your revenue.
