If you saw our floral design workshop exclusive to Pollen clients, and wished you could take it, we have good news! Pollen and The Flower Garden are teaming up to offer a hands-on introductory floral design workshop to benefit Les, The Flower Garden’s primo peddler of petals, to help with the costs of his recent cancer treatment.
Sunday, September 9, 2012
11AM – 1PM
3717 N. Ravenswood Ave. #237
Chicago, IL 60613
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.
Instruction will have an emphasis on working with late summer, locally grown flowers to create a low and lush centerpiece suitable for a dining room table. After some instruction and demonstration, each student will design a centerpiece of flowers from The Flower Garden to take home.
We’ll work with seasonal flowers such as dahlias, lisianthus, coxcomb, zinnias, gomphrena, and billy balls. Students are encouraged to bring their own vase, and we recommend bringing a vase roughly 5″ tall and 5″ in diameter. Vases will also be available for purchase.
To offer the most interactive instruction possible, the class is limited to 10 people. Registration is required, and at $100 per person includes instruction, flowers, the use of tools, and refreshments. All ticket sales help pay for Les’ cancer treatment.
