He has designed for flower shows, weddings, parties and church holidays, and he has taught classes and workshops for all ages and audiences. His goal will be to educate, inspire and entertain you.

Speer will take you through the world of wedding design and how it relates to party and event design. He will have flowers, some mechanics, wire and accessories. Please bring greens of any kind and a container of your choice—also a floral knife or clippers and needle-nose pliers if you have them. All levels of arrangers are welcome.
