Relaxed and Intimate Setting

Classes are taught at the Flowerhandlers Studio in Upper Marlboro, MD just 15 minutes from Annapolis, Bowie, Crofton, Davidsonville, and Edgewater; 30 minutes from Washington D.C., and 45 minutes from Baltimore.

Address: 17601 Queen Anne Road – Upper Marlboro, MD 20774

It’s a residential neighborhood with an intimate setting. The space is a working studio where floral design for weddings, life celebration events, and photo-shoots occur when not being used as a classroom. We’ve carved out space for up to six students. The small class size insures that you have no trouble seeing,
hearing, or understanding what is being taught. And, that you get individual focus and attention throughout each class.

Special Note: There is no handicap access to the studio and stairs / steps will be used throughout the day.
