Upcoming Classes

Floral Design: Think Outside the Pot!
Tuesday, November 22 ~ 2pm to 4pm

Need a holiday floral arrangement but are short on time? Join us for an afternoon of hands-on fun to learn how to make impressive floral designs with containers you already have in your home.

Students will learn tips, shortcuts, and surprisingly easy ways to make arrangements both beautiful and personal, perfect for decorating your table or giving as a gift.

Students must bring a small container no larger than 5”, such as a Ball jar, empty candle container, tea tin, etc. (*optional- bring your favorite small pruners). The instructor will provide flowers and greens (varieties based on availability) but encourages students to supplement their creations by bringing clippings from their own garden/landscaping (evergreens, berry branches, etc.)

Community Instructor: Jeanne Lesniewicz
