Seasonal Floral Design

Learn to use your own garden flowers to create beautiful pieces of art for your home and your friends. We will cover color theory and color blending, the different elements you can find in your garden that will add interest and depth to your arrangements, how to choose a vessel, flower food, cutting tools, and different methods of anchoring and supporting your flowers in the vase. You’ll head home with an gorgeous seasonal arrangement in your own vase. Plus learn a bit about easy-to-grow flowers for your cutting garden!
