In partnership with the Georgia State Florist Association the second annual teacher/student floral design clinic will be held August 15th and 16th at the Georgia FFA Camp in Covington.  This camp will allow both students and teachers to learn from some of the most talented designers in Georgia.  Instructors will cover topics from the basics of design and mechanics to high style floral design construction.  The theme for this year's clinic is Live Life in Color!

Mr. Randy Wooten, Georgia State Florist Association member has graciously offered to find sponsors to help alleviate some of the cost of the clinic for attendees.  Attendees will take home all designs they make during the 2 day clinic as well as extra product/hardgoods purchased for their use.  The cost to attend the clinic which includes lodging, meals, tshirt and all product/floral material is $75 per person. Payment must be received by July 31st.  Checks can be made out to South Region Ag Ed and need to be designated FLORAL DESIGN CLINIC.  

Send payment to:
South Region Ag Ed
2802 Moore Hwy ABAC 34
Tifton GA 31793

This is a hands on clinic so each attendee will need to bring the following:
floral shears/floral scissors (NOT regular scissors)
hand held pruners
needle nose pliers
round nose pliers
wire cutters

This clinic is open to both teachers and students with no limit on the number of students a teacher can bring.  Deadline to register is July 10th.  Students will be divided into two groups (junior and senior designers).  Designate on the registration sheet how many junior designers and how many senior designers you will bring as product will vary per group.  Due to the nature of this clinic advance preparation and ordering is necessary therefore we will only allow those who have registered to attend so no extras can be added on site.  If you need to make a name change at registration that will be fine.  There will be no refunds given.  Also, if you have any student who has special needs use the space provided on the registration document to designate those.  Use the link below to register:
