The White Rhino

 Hobbyist Level
Monday, September 12th, 6:30 – 8:00

In this class students create an planted succulent garden using our new planter in the form of a white rhino.  Great as a centerpiece at home or a conversation starter at the office, students will learn how to properly layer drainage and soil amendments to provide the bast start for their garden.  This will bring a smile into your space all throughout the winter months if given proper care.

Students should bring a sharp scissor to use and gloves if they require.

This class will focus on building a compact yet lush design featuring sprays of phaleanopsis orchids, some bold cockscomb, pods and several methods of foliage manipulation.  This is the sort of design you see often in trendy New York boutiques and offices.

Learning these methods of presenting dynamic flowers in a centerpiece style will allow you to make interesting deigns throughout the year.  Texture, form, dynamic line and rhythm are an integral part of this project.

The Tuscan Centerpiece

Hobbyist Level
Tuesday, September 27th
, 6:30 p.m. – 9:00p.m.

As summer comes to a close and the cooler nights of Autumn arrive, I like to allow my designs to stretch and sprawl out along the table.

In the class students will work with a mix of long vines, herbs, fruit and bold flowers in yellow and deep blue reminiscent of the Tuscan countryside.  Specific instruction will be given on constructing a design that can support heavier stems, learning the layering process that gives the overall design a sense of natural growth and movement.

This class requires that you have enough space to work, so we must limit the class size.  Please don’t wait to sign up for this popular class.

Limit 3 students  Please bring a paring or pocket knife and garden pruners.

$200.00 



Tillandsia Terrarium

Hobbyist Level

Wednesday, October 5th,  6:00 – 7:15

The tillandsia xerographica is the queen of the tillandsia family.  Its large size and curving silver foliage make it almost seem like some sort of appealing sea creature.  We’ll be placing those in a fun and modern glass and wood terrarium with a round wood ball that sets on top of the opening.  Branches, stones and gravel will be just a few of the items available that students can use to construct their own green world.  We’ll talk about care for your garden so that you can enjoy it for a long time.

Limit 6 students

Students should bring a paring knife or florist knife to use.

All classes must be paid in advance, no refunds will be made later than 7 days before any class.

Gorgeous Gourds and Everything Fall

Hobbyist Level,

Thursday, October 27th,  6:15p.m.-8:15p.m.

I’m not one to do the old routine of carving out a pumpkin to make a floral design popping out of it, BUT i do love all of the crazy assorted gourds and small pumpkins that are available these days.

As the weekend approaches and the ghosts and goblins start running around the neighborhood, this design can be the showstopper of your buffet table.  Students will use a mix of fun and funky flowers such as banksia, protea, roses  and other flowers tucked in alongside other berries and branches.  This will be a taller design so you’ll still have room on the kitchen island for the treats.

Limit 5 students

Students should bring a paring or pocket knife, a garden pruner and an apron if desired.

All classes must be paid in advance, no refunds will be made later than 7 days before any class.
