Welcome, Spring! A Four Seasons Floral Design Workshop

Beautiful spring blooms inspired both Renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo and artist and filmmaker Philip Haas. In this hands-on floral design workshop, you’ll look closely at the Four Seasons sculptures before heading inside to create your very own celebration of spring featuring roses, hyacinths, and tulips.

All materials are included. The completed arangement will be aproximately twelve inches wide. 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.
