This workshop is exclusive to past and current Pollen clients and their guests. The introductory two-hour class, taught at Pollen’s floral design new studio location, 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 please 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.  These same cylinders will also be available if you don’t have a favorite vase you’d like to learn to work with.

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 $12 per person, and includes instruction, flowers, and the use of tools.

Tickets are $12 per person (just to insure those who register do attend) and can be found at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/775338

For Past and Present Clients: Hands-On Floral Design Workshop

As a “thank you” to past and current clients, Pollen is offering a hands-on workshop in basic floral design.  This workshop is exclusive to past and current Pollen clients*, who may each bring one guest. The introductory two-hour class, taught at Pollen’s floral design studio in the Ravenswood Corridor, will cover:
– flower selection,
– cut flower care, and
– the basics of floral design.

The class will have an emphasis on designing a low and lush arrangement 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 please only bring vases that are under 6″ tall and with openings under 5″ wide.  5″ x 5″ clear glass cylinder vases will also be available for purchase.

To offer the most interactive instruction possible, the class is limited to 15 people, and therefore clients are limited to one additional guest.  Registration is $15 per person, and includes instruction, flowers, and the use of tools.
