We buy flowers as an experience of connection -- to beauty, to nature, to each other, and at Gather Flora, we strive to find ways to reflect this in the way we do business. We hope to expand access to professional development and distribute leadership opportunities within our dynamic industry.

In partnership with Max Gill, we are offering 3 scholarship spaces to those from underrepresented communities to attend our upcoming Gather Flora + Max Gill Master's workshop free of charge.

Gather Flora is delighted to partner with world-renowned floral designer Max Gill to offer a Master's Workshop. This is a stripped-back 3-hour class geared towards industry professionals who crave a chance to tune in to Max’s core principles and methods of floral design as informed by natural process, specialty blooms, and botanical rarities gleaned from local growers. We will employ a limited palette and minimal elements to refocus on building a solid spatial foundation for floral design that can scale from the centerpiece to complex installations.
