See what is possible with a floral design! A wide range of possibilities, materials, and techniques are shown for each workshop. You do not need specific skills as we will create designs with “low effort-High impact!” The focus of these workshops will be to transform the norm of traditional floral arrangements into designs that bring the WOW! Everyone will create and take home their arrangement and learn how to make an impact with fresh and preservable arrangements! With grocery store flowers ranging from *40.00 for a dozen roses to upwards of 100.00 for arrangements, learn the skills to turn every day into the extraordinary! Workshops are offered to coincide with the upcoming seasons and holidays to add fun to the festivities! Bring your creations to someone as a gift, sign up with friends, or show them off in your own home! (cost examples from Mariano’s). The instructor will email students a week before the workshop with details of what we will create. Materials for all workshops will be provided! In addition, the instructor will suggest any relevant additional materials if students are interested in providing alternatives. So bring yourself and leave with something beautiful!
Moss Wall Panel, Feb Floral Design (LEI0107 – 022)
During February, live flower costs can be sky-high! It’s an excellent time to take a break from traditional arrangements and create something with a lasting impact for every season. Bring some green into your home during these cold months by creating a preserved moss wall panel. Preserved moss stays green, so there is no need for maintenance! Create two 12x12 or one 24 x 24 board using a variety of mosses (sizes may vary depending on availability at the time of workshop).
