MDS Workshop 2018

THE WORKSHOP

You are invited to join us for more than a full day of defining your style and learning design with our 2018 Mayesh Design Star, Kaylee Young. Below are highlights of our Curate & Create workshop; click RSVP for more details.

MOOD BOARDING

Define your style. Each student will create a mood board that describes themselves, their brand or their personal style.

CURATING A FLOWER ORDER

Kaylee reviews how she curates her flower order. Then, each person, using words inspired from the mood boards, will choose a color palette and flowers that best represents their self.

CENTERPIECE DEMONSTRATION

Building off of Kaylee's curation methods, she will talk about implementing structure, blending colors, defining a shape and layering flowers then students will be able to design their own centerpiece.

GROUP FLORAL INSTALLATION

Kaylee will share what kind of structures to use to build a large floral archway or other installation as well as what floral tools work best and how to secure flowers in place. Afterward, the class will be split into groups to build an archway together.

PRO PHOTOS & SELFIE STATION

Nicole Clarey will be on hand to capture professional pictures of you and your work. Also, you will have time to apply the pro photog tips that you gained and snap some selfies.

HAPPY HOUR

What better way to end a day of learning than sharing a celebrating with Kaylee and your new flower friends!

ABOUT KAYLEE

Kaylee got her start in the floral industry after taking a career aptitude test in college that indicated that the top career considered for her was “Florist.” Though working with flowers had never even crossed her mind, she was intrigued, and signed up for a beginner floral design course. Kaylee fell in love with floral design, and after bombarding a local flower shop with her resume for two years, they finally gave her the job. Kaylee worked for shops for about three years learning traditional mechanics and techniques before moving into the event side of the industry and starting her business, Flourish by Kay. 

Kaylee’s design philosophy is all about creation & curation, and she believes that beautiful floral design is made up of 50% the curation of the flowers and materials, and 50% creating the design with good technique. She approaches every design with intention and thoughtfully curates each flower order to reflect that. Kaylee is also passionate about styling, merging the two to create beautiful and intentional events. 

When it comes to education, Kaylee does not believe in replication. While she hopes her students learn new techniques and walk away with tangible takeaways, her biggest goal is to help them discover their own style, and fuse her knowledge of floral design with their individual styles to help them grow as a designer while staying true to themselves.
