A winter centerpiece with peach amaryllis, garden roses, and ranunculus, gold and wine-colored orchids, and an unruly assortment of foraged goods created by Joy Thigpen at her workshop in January to demonstrate how to create flower arrangements for the attendees. After some instruction the group was sent out to give it a go themselves. We were so impressed with their work we wanted to share a few with you here!

So good, right??? AND today Joy is actually announcing 3 more workshops for the year. One will be a repeat of the January workshop which covers all the basics of Creative Direction + Styling and then she’s adding two new ones–an Advanced workshop for those who have taken one of her workshops already or have had other experience and a Crash Course on Styling for wedding photographers so they can take their work to the next level, even when they don’t get to work with a stylist.

OMG Joy, I’m so honoured to have my bouquet featured on OnceWed. Thank you so much!
I enjoyed every moment of your inspirational workshop and I can’t believe that my first bouquet ever already got published. It really makes me want to make some more and practice. xoxo

Wow! Joy, you are amazing… I remember seeing you working on that arrangement and feeling so sub-real. Being in a class with you again would be an honor and a privilege. Working on it! And thank you so much for featuring our work. You are such a great teacher!
