About the Cass School of Floral Design

The Cass School of Floral Design has remained a creative force in the floral industry ever since it was established in 1981. We have successfully taught the art of floral design to thousands—professionals and casual students alike.

Our clientele ranges from the floral design professional seeking the latest trends and fashions to the accountant looking for an outlet for her creative side. We have successfully taught landscapers and retirees, bus drivers and nurses, brides and grooms, mothers and daughters.

In our professional classroom space, our seasoned instructors share their years of industry experience as head designers, managers and shop owners. Private lessons and personalized Petal Parties can be arranged, as well as corporate and event hands-on classes where Cass will come to you.

Additionally we offer two certificate-granting programs licensed by the state of Massachusetts. Successful graduates of the Professional Florist Training Program and the Advanced Design Program have gone on to start and own their own businesses, manage florist shops, and experience the thrill of using their creativity every day.

Whatever your needs are—professional, causal, fun, or relaxing—the Cass School of Floral Design will not disappoint.

The Cass School of Floral Design and associated retail store, Cass the Florist, are located in Watertown, Massachusetts, which adjoins Boston, Cambridge, Newton and Waltham. It is easily reachable via Storrow Drive, the Mass Pike, Route 128 or by public transportation.
