Create an arrangement of summer splendor! Using seasonally harvested Arboretum and Minnesota-grown botanicals with unique focal points of fruits and vines, design emphasis will be placed on color blending techniques and using a variety of textures and scent to create unique arrangements. Leave with knowledge of basic floral preparation practices, concepts of layering and form and handy tips on how to gather the necessary materials to create your own masterpieces at home. The class will be taught by a local, industry recognized floral artist, Ashley Fox (www.ashleyfoxdesigns.com
). Ashley says that the final arrangement that you take home will be valued around $100, and all materials (including the vase) are included in your class fee.
