FALL FOR LOCAL: FLORAL WORKSHOP FEATURING INGREDIENTS FROM LITTLE STATE FLOWER FARM
(Collaborative Workshop with Little State Flower Company)
LOCATION: Tower Hill Botanical Garden, Boylston Massachusetts
DETAILS: $175. Saturday, October 7, 2017. 1:30 pm– 3:30 pm
There are few things more indicative of the change of the seasons than the shifting colors and textures of the leaves, flowers and trees surrounding us. Join Jill Rizzo of Studio Choo East and Anna Jane Kocon of Little State Flower Company for a collaborative floral design workshop focusing on bringing the fleeting beauty of autumn into your home. We'll start with a show-and-tell on the basics: selection, flower care, cleaning and seasonality. We'll discuss the selected color palette and our favorite ways to tweak traditional autumn hues. The arranging demonstration will focus on combining gestural branches and foliage to make a unique structural base, then we'll show you how to layer and nestle your favorite blooms for a composition that is full of movement and air. Workshop cost includes all materials for students to take home (flowers and vessel). Floral snips will be provided for use during the workshop but students are encouraged to bring their own.
