I am very excited to announce that Kim Thomas, owner, grower and designer at Flower Blossom Farm is hosting a 2 day workshop at her gorgeous farm in upstate NY. You will design with dozens of varieties of her flowers, foliages and textures.
This workshop offers practical, hands-on experience that will further develop your own skills and increase your confidence to explore outside the box. You will create new designs with strong emphasis on the commercial and saleable value of the designs.
Monday, August 1 – Cascading Bridal Bouquets, Wrist Corsages, Hairpieces and Botanical Jewelry
Join us to learn how to create gorgeous romantic cascading hand-tied bouquets using the most beautiful flowers and textures freshly harvested from Kim’s farm. In the afternoon we will explore chic, wearable floral jewelry. Your brides will love botanical rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets as alternatives to the traditional pin-on corsages. You’ll also learn how to create extended flower combs and delicate wrist corsages.
Tuesday, August 2 – Woodland Centerpieces
For Françoise, the Woodlands sprouted from a childhood memory that took a life of its own. Using foliage, bark, berries, seedpods, twigs, mushrooms, herbs and flowers, we’ll explore how to make a variety of centerpieces. In the afternoon you will create your own containers using bark and branches. You will hone your artistic talents and will be encouraged to listen to your own intuition and further your own vision.
