Workshops

Have you always wanted to try your hand at flower arranging? Our flower design workshops are aimed at a basic level of flower arranging. We want it to be a fun, relaxed environment that you can enjoy, while in the process, creating a beautiful flower arrangement to take home with you.

The price of the workshop includes all materials – unless otherwise noted. All workshop participants will receive an information packet on flower and/or plant care & handling as well as flower arranging basics.

Please feel free to call and schedule a private workshop for three or more children or adults. We can customize your workshop to any type of flower arranging, terrarium planting or garden care that you are interested in learning.

Floral Crown Workshop at Strangeways Fall 2015

by Cassie H Creates

colortheory

Floral design is an art form; cut stems and greenery are the medium and a vase is the canvas. The basic elements of art and design apply to floral arranging just as they do for painting and sculpture. Texture, line, shape, form, space, value and color are all important when creating a thoughtful composition.

In this hands on workshop, we will examine how significant color theory is in floral design. Color is the best part of flowers and nature has given us quite a palette to be inspired by. Color theory is understanding how different hues, shades & tones work together and play off of one another in an arrangement. Each attendee will compose their own colorful floral arrangement to take home by utilizing the fundamentals of color theory.

No experience or prior knowledge necessary. All materials and instruction will be provided. All ages welcome.

***You must register in advance to attend, space is limited. Workshop fees are non-refundable.***
