O que você fará

When Covid-19 started, and the social isolation came along, I decided to reinvent myself and transfer my passion online to connect with a broader community.

I see floral design as a branch of beaux-arts. In fact, flowers can touch us as much as paintings do; they influence the vibes of a space, and they bright up our mood. Nonetheless, floral art is still far from being recognized in its cultural value from the broad audience; let's discover it together through my unique vision within a creative, judgement-less, and inspiring context.

The experience consists of 3 parts:

1) I will show a floral painting and go over its formal elements, and the story of the painter who made it. During this phase, I will teach you how to look at any painting with a particular “observer method”, to capture the artwork's beauty at best.
2) After that, we’ll make the flower arrangement inspired by the painting! This is the longest part of the workshop, where I’ll share all the basics of floristry, plus some fun facts about flowers and techniques.
3) I will conclude the workshop showing some pics of my favorite botanical artists that inspire my art practice, and even a personal project that taught me how to use creativity as a form of resilience.

Flowers have changed my life when I moved to California from Italy. The nature’s gifts, such as fallen petals and bougainvillea trees, would bright up my day in the unfamiliar city. Being able to appreciate floral beauty around myself made San Francisco a sweet spot for me.

After 8 years of experience in the art field, during which I curated and exhibited in 10+ art shows in Milan, Melbourne and San Francisco, and I published an art book ("M. R. Ballestra, a Phenomenology of Posthuman", Mimesis Editor, Italy), I decided to focus on floristry developing professional skills in 3 different arranging styles: Wild, Traditional and Modern.
Now, I create unique designs for VIP clients (Millennium Tower, 4 Season Hotel, Intercontinental Hotel, Marriott, La Mar, and many more).
My clients describe my works as "incredible pieces of art".

A lovely and unique experience with Elena. Thoroughly enjoyable and more interesting than I expected. I am confident that I will create more beautiful arrangements in the future (particularly as my flowers were a week old and not very colourful!).

‏I received this experience as a gift from my partner, who knew exactly what was right for me. ‏ Beyond being lovely, Helenas workshop is exceptionally structured. I was able to get a kind of a "summary of flowers arrangements." There is no doubt that after this experience I will no longer buy a ready-made bouquet at a gas station. With the tools I have been given I can put together a personal bouquet that I can give to my loved ones. Unfortunately I came to the workshop without flowers of my own (and still really enjoyed ), but I recommend getting organized in advance to enhance the experience :) ‏ Thank you so much!

This was my first AirBnB Experience, and I loved it! Elena made the class fun and took the time to help each person get the most out of their arrangements. I learned a lot and had fun!

An unexpected magical experience. I dove into the art world and gained the foundational understanding in sculpting a beautiful art piece through flower arrangement. I’m not as intimated to make my own arrangements and build on my skills to make them my own. Wonderful class Elena! I can tell you really connect with your work. 🌷

This was a great experience. I felt that I learned a lot about Elena's prior experience and passion for floral design. She worked very hard to personalize instruction and connected the floral design back to the art world. I'm looking forward to taking a class with her again in the future.
