Spread the word, Gudrun is coming to Atlanta. Many of you will be excited to know that one of my favorite European designers will be teaching here in the US. I hope you will take this opportunity to design with Gudrun, she was my absolute favorite designer this past spring when I traveled to Europe to design for the first time. If you are interested in design you must sign up for this class. Gudrun is one of the most inspiring designers I know. In addition to that she is incredibly kind and gentle in her teaching manor. Gudrun taught me more in one day than I have learned in years of designing. She is a floral designers dream come true!!!

The below information was provided by friend Laura Iarocci of Faith Flowers. Gudrun will be teaching at Laura’s school in Atlanta.

The above floral piece of art hangs over the fireplace at Gudruns home. I was in love with the simplicity of this design. I can’t tell you how many times I have thrown away old willow branches. This is a piece I am still dying to make. Gudrun also taught me how to make wax bowls, and I even learned how to turn a toilet paper roll into a napkin ring. Yep Gudrun was amazing!!!

Please take this opportunity to go meet and design with my friend Gudrun. You will be amazed and inspired.
