Hands-On Floral Design Workshop
Pollen and The Flower Garden are teaming up to offer a hands-on introductory floral design workshop to benefit Les, The Flower Garden's primo peddler of petals, to help with the costs of his recent cancer treatment.
The introductory two-hour class, taught at Pollen's floral design studio in the Ravenswood Corridor with flowers provided by The Flower Garden, will cover:
- flower selection,
- cut flower care, and
- the basics of floral design for the home.
Instruction will have an emphasis on working with late-summer, locally grown flowers to create a low and lush centerpiece suitable for a dining room table. Each student will design a centerpiece of seasonal flowers such as dahlias, lisianthus, coxcomb, zinnias, gomphrena, and billy balls.
Students are encouraged to bring their own vase, and we recommend bringing a vase roughly 5 tall and 5 in diameter. Vases will also be available at the workshop.
To offer the most interactive instruction possible, the class is limited to 10 people. Registration is $100 per person, and includes instruction, flowers, the use of tools, and refreshments. All ticket sales help pay for Les's cancer treatment.
Registration ends Friday, September 7th at 11PM.
