For The Love Of Peonies Bridal Bouquet Workshop, July 7th 2018, 10:00 AM
The Peony workshop is back and it is going to be better then ever this year with over 600 peony plants that will be in bloom, it is one workshop you will not want to miss out on. This is truly my favourite workshop of the year because for a few hours I get to welcome you to my home farm where I feel the most at peace. It is here on our quarter section of land that I nurture and grow my peonies, where our three horses run wild and my pup follows my like a shadow.
At this workshop you will get a behind the scenes view of my working studio as well as a tour of the farm. When you arrive we will have a cup of tea and a wander around the peony patch. After getting acquainted and settling in I will show you the basics of harvesting flowers from your garden as well as how to process your flowers to ensure the longest vase life possible.
Then it is time for the most special part of the day where you take your clippers and go for a walk among the 600 peony plants and select for yourself the most perfect blooms and colors that you would like to work with. Once you have selected your flowers we will head back into the studio where I will guide you in creating a peony filled floral bouquet masterpiece!
We will also go over peony plant care as well as planting tips and tricks to help you succeed in growing your own lush plants!
The skills you will learn from our workshop will enable you to feel comfortable designing hand tied floral bouquets and arrangements for your home and friends for years to come. The only thing you need to bring with you is your beautiful self and I will supply the rest!
I can't wait to see you at a workshop soon!
