Sparks Florist offers many types of classes to the public, each at our large, state-of-the-art Floral Design Center at 1440 Hymer Avenue in Sparks.
DIY Floral Design Classes
Looking for something fun to do in Reno and Sparks? Join us in our DIY floral classes where you make our very own flower arrangement that you get to keep. We’ll guide you step by step in creating a different arrangement at each DIY class based upon a unique or seasonal theme, and are usually offered 1-2 times per quarter. These classes are lots of fun and provide a great opportunity for you to express your creativity while arranging a piece you take with you for your home, office, or a friend. Our classes are held at the Sparks Florist Floral Design Center and we provide all of the materials and instruction at a cost equal to our normal retail price for the given design.

Customized DIY Events
You tell us when, what, and how many, and we will customize a class or design party specifically for your group, providing the flowers, greens, containers, facilities, tools, materials, with the level of instruction or assistance completely up to you! These classes are perfect for Girls-Night-Out parties, birthday parties, youth groups, Church groups, fraternal clubs, company team- building exercises, marketing programs, and the ever popular wedding flower design parties for brides on a budget.
This is a great entry-level class conducted in a working traditional retail florist setting, and is offered in conjunction with the Community Services Division of Truckee Meadows Community College. This fun, popular, and very successful class is scheduled for 10 continuous weekday sessions over a two-week period, each 3-hours long during the afternoon. The goal is to provide basic training for students to be hired as a Care and Handling Associate, Design Assistant, or Sales Associate in a retail floral business. The only complaint students have about this class is that it just isn’t long enough! View more information and register for the TMCC class here.
Flowers for Fun
This class also is offered in conjunction with the Community Services Division of Truckee Meadows Community College, and is setup to teach design fundamentals to the hobbyist. Always different, fun, and interesting, this 2-week class is offered at the Floral Design Center for two one-hour sessions per season. Don’t miss it! Sign up here.
