The Flower School: The Principles and Pleasures of Good Flowers, 2022
In May 2022, Joseph released The Flower School, published by Quadrille. The Flower School takes you by the hand and expertly guides you step-by-step through design principles and twenty-five floral projects to empower you to create your own gorgeous floral arrangements for your home, gatherings, celebrations and for pleasure.
If you’ve ever been swept up admiring some garden blooms, or a flower stand at your local market, and wondered, just how do I transform these raw materials into floral displays that elicit a sense of wonder in their admirers, then allow award-winning floral designer Joseph Massie to show you how, as he shares his knowledge, recipes and personal tips for creating with flowers, with intention, thought and skill.
Tumbling cascades of peonies and exquisitely arranged vases of unfurled garden roses are an everyday pleasure for Joseph. Whilst creating breathtaking marvels from armfuls of blooms is what Joseph does daily, his true passion is sharing his knowledge to encourage and inspire absolutely anyone who wants to work with flowers to be able to do so – and do it well. Let yourself be empowered by the learning process of skills, techniques and principles that will enable you to build a strong floral design foundation so as to be able to indulge in your own floral pleasures or flower-filled career.
