AND LASTLY

a bit about your instructor:

Cambridge School of Flowers founder, Elaine Martin, started her career in the fashion industry as a fashion buyer and vice-president of a leading Canadian fashion retailer. Her organic soft approach can be attributed to growing up in a large rural garden in Southern Ontario. As well, much of her floral influence comes from time spent in Provence, France.

For several seasons Elaine co-produced and hosted Canada’s first Home & Garden television show, which appeared eight times per week on Life Network – what is now HGTV.

She has been a writer and has been featured in many magazines in both Canada and the USA.

Elaine had the honour to be the in-house florist for Langdon Hall for three consecutive years & named in the Best List by Wedding Bells Magazine
