Join our 2019 Mayesh Design Star, Shean Strong, for an inspiring floral design course. Below are highlights of our Design with Shean Strong Workshop. Click RSVP for more details and to secure your seat. The overall concept for our 2019 design workshop tour is to reinvigorate and re-inspire you while offering two different courses - All Levels and a Masterclass. The All Levels class is going to shape the way you see yourself as a designer and with that empower you to stretch yourself creatively. The Masterclass is going to give established designers an opportunity to elevate their designs and learn some new techniques. Both classes will allow all students to use the professional photos of their work to showcase what they can do with the proper investment, tools, and flowers. Shean encourages you to bring your questions, frustrations, and rants. We want to strengthen this community of designers and give you a chance to have your passions reignited.
Because of Shean's transparency and willingness to answer your questions, it's no wonder his design workshops sell out. Follow along and join us in 2019 as Shean + Mayesh host some incredible and instructional floral design courses.
Students will begin by walking through Shean's board and the flowers he's chosen leading into a more in-depth conversation about shape, color theory, design, and mood all while designing the demo arrangement.
Everyone runs their floral business differently. Learn about Shean's pricing and business structure to see what has been successful for him.
Shean will briefly discuss how he handles client interactions, emails, his process, etc. leaving the floor open for questions. Questions will also be encouraged throughout the course.
Shean will walk through the design concepts of large-scale installations. The installation will depend on the venue and class level.
Nicole Clarey will be on hand to capture professional fine art pictures of you and your work perfect to post on social media, your blog and to add to your portfolio!
Part of our workshop experience is networking and you will have plenty of time to do so for Monday evening happy hour and throughout the rest of your time with us.
Shean Strong is a floral and event designer who grew up all over the world but currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia. Shean began designing with flowers as a creative outlet while in college and it didn't take him long to fall in love with this artistry.
"I describe my aesthetic as tailored, and refined. As a true romantic, I understand the importance of understated elegance working with unconventionally elevated palettes to create a feeling in lieu of a theme - At the end of the day, my job is to make sure you have the most beautiful wedding and have a great time celebrating you and your spouse."
Shean has curated relationships with many vendors and designers alike. He excels in speaking candidly about the business of flowers, design techniques and how to have a profitable business.
