Philosophy

About

THE SCHOOL OF BLOOM is a floral design school with classes for children & adults to both educate and empower others to confidently love floral design, themselves, and to create connections with nature on a deeper level.

Sharla Flock of Sharla Flock Designs in San Francisco is deeply passionate about flowers and with over 20+ years of experience in the floral industry, she bring her first-hand knowledge and expertise to the table with love and enthusiasm for her craft.

Our classes are rooted in kindness and the evolution of self-confidence + joy through playing with flowers. Exploring flowers and what they bring to our lives never felt (or looked + smelled) so good!

Looking forward to celebrating my love for flowers with you!
