“This class was awesome! The help and support you receive as a student really shows that they want you to be successful. I am proud to be a part of the IWED family and I can't wait to come back for more classes.”



Our curriculum is taught by industry experts who show you the right way to execute magazine-cover worthy designs.


Post-demonstration you work with the instructors and the rest of the group to build out the various elements of the event, from reception to ceremony & more.


Afterwards there is an open discussion and Q&A on the design elements, techniques and tools used during the execution portion.


We do this for every stage of the event, so you can understand how designers pull off top-tier events for luxury hotels and celebrity clientelle.


This class was such a great opportunity for me. It was beyond what I expected and I highly recommend you take the time to invest in your passion and take this class! The two days were filled with a wealth of knowledge and I am so happy I decided to enroll.
