Floral Master Class with Kristen Alpaugh
Highly sought after LA-based artist Kristen Alpaugh, also known as FLWR PSTL, passionately immerses herself in the world of botanical and floral art, crafting stories that ignite the senses. Fueled by an intoxicating blend of creativity and an irresistible allure for the beauty of nature, her journey unfolds in a seductive dance of passion and artistic prowess.
Kristen is the founder and creative force behind Haus of Stems, the world's first on-demand botanical art atelier, which ships luxury botanical art in FLWR PSTL signature holographic finishes-including her pioneering, and globally-recognized Irithuriums (the original iridescent anthuriums)-to florists and floral enthusiasts across the US and Canada.
In this exclusive floral master class, Kristen will share her signature style and inspire you to expand your palette of colors, textures, and materials as you craft your own enchanting arrangement. You'll experiment with paints, using large leaves as your canvas, while incorporating a custom Irithurium and specially selected seasonal blooms into a contemporary vessel.

Her experimental work, a blend of natural beauty, fine art and high fashion, has graced the pages of The New York Times, The LA Times, Architectural Digest, and Vogue.
