We are very excited to announce an exclusive one-day class in Los Angeles on 06 March this year as part of McQueens Flower School’s 20th-anniversary celebrations. Hosted by a former student, Kate Norris, of Foxgloves & Folly based in Hollywood, Los Angeles.
The success of McQueens Flower School is measured by the success of our students, and Kate is a shining ambassador of McQueens Flower School and the perfect example of how passion, drive and creativity helped her change direction from an unfulfilling career as a corporate lawyer to training at McQueens Flower School, working from the bottom rung with work experience and following her dreams to open a florist business in the States. The LA one-day class idea was first hatched over a year ago, during the research and development phase of her business.
“I had the most comprehensive introduction to the world of flowers during my time at the McQueens Flower School, and so much fun, I had the time of my life! I knew I wanted to work with flowers but my experience there certainly opened my eyes to all the possibilities in the world of flowers. I continued to immerse myself with hands-on work experience at McQueens HQ and was eager to learn more. The McQueens team have been so encouraging and supportive of my progress, and my plans to start a business in LA, so I’m very excited about seeing the guys here in LA and the class, which promises to be a fantastic experience!“
