Philosophy

About

THE SCHOOL OF BLOOM is a mobile 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!

Once again, we stepped outside our comfort zones and allowed our souls to blossom. Giving my guests permission to stop overthinking and just be present while creating is one of the most helpful advice I can share. We tend to get in our own way a lot of the time by paying too much attention to the inner critic. She’s not welcome at my workshops btw. Thank you Carol for sharing your story of how my classes changed your experience with flowers from frustration to joy. I loved hearing this. Thank you to everyone who attended our FLOWER POWER HAPPY HOUR last night. I loved spending my evening with you and witnessing you bloom 🌸
