The Tangerine Creations Flower School is located in Boston’s South End, directly across the street from the Boston Flower Exchange. At TCFS, we focus on three main goals — to educate those who want to learn how to floral design into a fruitful career, to bring friends together to learn about flowers in a social setting, and to donate our time to an organization or charity by teaching people with low income or disabilities a skill that could potentially help them find a job.
Classes at TCFS will be taught by Orly, Martha and other esteemed floral designers in the Greater Boston area. They will share their skills, design theory, and knowledge of working in the wedding industry. Below are the classes we are currently offering. Look below to find schedules and class descriptions.
To attend any of our classes, please contact us at 617-202-0299. Please book early, as space is limited.
