Dried Flower Wreath Making Workshop
Learn how to create beautiful and long-lasting dried flower holiday wreaths with Beth Benjamin, former apprentice and founding student of the UCSC Garden, in this hands-on, "make and take" workshop.
Beth will demonstrate the mechanics of putting everything together and will have several examples to guide your inspiration. You'll be able to choose from a wide selection of dried materials that were grown and dried at the Farm & Garden for your wreath. With care, your wreath will last for years.
Light refreshments will be served and the atmosphere promises to be jovial, creative and social.
What to Bring:
Flower snips, pruning shears or scissors if you have them (we will have a few extra).
