Learn how to create different arrangements with the same rich-hued blooms over the course of this series. You will hone skills while learning new floral techniques. On September 24, you’ll use similar flowers to create a handheld bouquet, which can be placed in a vase. 

All materials are included. Payment is required in advance due to materials fees, and is non-refundable. This program is limited to ten people, and must have a minimum of four participants to take place.  In the event that the workshop is cancelled, participants may choose to participate in another session.
