FAQ’s from Students about

The Floral University Network

with J Schwanke

What Should I bring to Class?
Since the Floral University Network (F.U.N.) School with J Schwanke is a Hands On experience; you will need the following tools and supplies:
- Design Knife
- Ribbon Shears
- Wire Cutters
- Stem Cutters (Loping Shears)
- Note Pad and Pen
- Camera (optional)

All the fresh flowers and innovative design supplies are provided with your registration. There is also a full color Cirriculum provided with the course. A camera is a great idea so you can record your fresh flower creations and those of the other class participants. Pictures are a great way to refer to what you have learned.

How many floral designs will we create in the class?
Class time provides for at least 4 floral designs…however in some cases others may be added if there is ample time. The remaining fresh flowers and supplies are yours to keep and take home. You can use them to get started implementing what you have learned or sell them to your customers for a profit.

What should I wear to the class?
Since the FUN School is held in a Network Partner Location or a hotel facility it can be very seasonal in temperature (hot in the summer or chilly in the winter) be sure to dress comfortable and casual. This is a FUN learning experience and J wants you to be comfortable at all times.

You may want to bring an apron for the hands on portion of the class.
