with Rebecca Cossa
Saturday, August 14
9 - 11am
One meeting, in person
Glebe House Outdoor Garden, 635 Main Street
Flowers are an integral part of bringing pleasure to our lives in many ways. The colors, meanings, and arrangements of flowers set the tone, bring energy to a space, and a certain amount of sophistication, whether it be a wedding or a dinner table.
Learning how to create your own arrangements is an empowering, stress-relieving, creative activity that satiates the need to express as well as connect with nature, and provides beauty and pride to enjoy long after. When planning an event, floral design provides a personal and meaningful touch to the celebration. All workshops in this series can assist people planning weddings and other events on a large or small scale or who just want to learn a new skill and enjoy themselves.
In this workshop, participants may use vessels created in a prior Fall Kill ceramics class, or will be provided one. All will learn about the history and culture of ikebana and develop basic skills to create one design to take home.
