All About the Vida Flores Flower School!


The Vida Flores August - November Flower School Schedule is out now, with an exciting line-up of hands-on flower and design classes, for students of all levels. 

The Flower School classes are a wonderful way to learn the basic techniques and skills of floristry, giving students the confidence to create their own beautiful floral designs at home. Vida Flores offers classes in hand-held bouquets, posies, table centrepieces, vase arrangements, and flowers for festive occasions, flowers for adornment and many more.
The classes are led by Davina Prankerd, who established Vida Flores in 2000, developing it into one of New Zealand’s foremost floral design studios. Davina is a classically trained florist, and has been in the industry for over 25 years. With her expertise, creativity and clever aesthetic, she will guide students in creating their own glorious floral arrangements.
This year Vida Flores is also offering a series of Saturday afternoon Creative Workshops, enlisting the skills of some of New Zealand’s top design talents to share their pearls of wisdom. These clever people include the likes of cake decorators, floral and botanical designers, fabric artists and ceramicists. In September, the wonderfully talented Mark Antonia will be with us to share their talent with dried flowers and talk about what inspires them and how they have come to be such a dynamic design duo. Maggie Thompson from Florabunda and Cake is leading a class on her amazing sugar paste flowers and plant genius Coraleigh Parker, of Pickled Whimsy, will be leading a class in Kokedama, a style of Japanese bonsai; a fun-to-create ball of moss, string and plant-life with a Christmas theme!

Vida Flores wants its students to keep on creating at home, so all Flower School Members receive 15% discount on fresh cut flowers and products purchased in-store (conditions apply).

All classes are held at the gorgeous Vida Flores premises, 12 McColl Street, Newmarket. Book now online at www.vidaflores.co.nz
