Saturdays, June 4 & 18, 3:00–5:00pm
$60 for Both Sessions | $35 for One Session
If you are drawn to the beauty of flowers, don’t miss out on this unique two-part workshop! In the first session, a florist will instruct participants on the intricate art of floral arranging. Participants will get the chance to assemble their own floral arrangement after watching a demonstration by floral arranging artist Trish Manfredi! Pictures of the finished arrangements will be taken at the end. In the second workshop, participants will immortalize their beautiful bouquets by referencing the photographs and painting them using watercolors under the instruction of a staff teaching artist.
Participants must provide their own flowers (estimated cost $15). Additional decorations, structural supports, and containers will be provided. Resources for flower purchasing will be sent upon registration.
Registration closes May 26th.
