Update 8/6/2013: The workshop is sold out. To get first dibs next year, “like” Pollen’s Facebook page!
We at Pollen are excited to offer for the second time our Client Appreciation Floral Design Workshop, exclusively for past and present Pollen clients! It’s a chance for us to say “thanks” to our clients and to catch up. This year’s workshop will be held at our new studio in Avondale on Sunday, August 18th from 11AM – 1PM.
Pollen clients can bring a friend, drink some mimosas, and design an arrangement with locally grown flowers.
The introductory two-hour class will cover:
- flower selection,
- cut flower care, and
- the basics of floral design.
Instruction will have an emphasis on working with seasonal farmers market flowers. After some instruction and demonstration, each student will design a floral arrangement to take home. Students are encouraged to bring the vase they use most often, but should only bring vases that are under 10″ tall and with openings 5″ wide or less. I’ll be demonstrating in a 5″ x 5″ cylinder to create a low and lush table centerpiece. These same cylinders will also be available to those who don’t have an appropriately sized vase.
To offer the most interactive instruction possible, the class is limited to 16 people, and therefore clients are limited to one additional guest. Registration is $15 per person, and includes instruction, refreshments, flowers, and the use of tools.
Last year was a blast, and we’re excited to be able to include a few more people this year in our bigger space. I’m so looking forward to it! Past and present Pollen clients can get more information and register here.
