Our popular Floral Design classes now comprise the Floral Design Certificate program at The Center for Continuing Studies. This brings students a well-rounded experience with design, enabling them to transfer what is learned in class immediately into their home or business settings. Recently, Instructor Deborah Pomroy Moyer received this note and photo from her student:

 

Hi Debbie,

I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing class last night.

I really learned a lot and enjoyed the class and your style of teaching.

Today I took my foam based arrangement and placed in a brass compote that I absolutely love.

Thought you would like to see the end result.

Looking forward to the Organic class in October.

 

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Nichole
