Ode to Spring Floral Workshop: April 25

(for adults)

Invite the season into your home by creating a joyful spring bouquet using fragrant florals! We will work with the blooms of spring such as lilac, hyacinth, tulip varieties, fritillaries, clematis, accent greens and blossoming branches.

In this workshop you will learn how to choose, condition, and arrange flowers, as well as tips about seasonal blooms, while surrounded by nature and beauty at Reeves-Reed Arboretum. All experience levels are welcome. Classes begin promptly at 11:00 am and run for approximately two hours. We will round out the afternoon with snacks and refreshments while we create together! Price includes all florals and containers and use of tools during the class.
