B8 Arranging Plant Materials for the Home

Description: Try some new ways of working with plant materials: make a tussie mussie hostess gift, use minimal materials to create abstract floral designs, create small arrangements, make and preserve a boxwood wreath, and go on a fall field hike to gather branches and berries and then learn how to arrange your gatherings in an artist'sstudio. MATERIALS NEEDED: floral shears, pruning shears and two blocks of oasis. Bring the floral shears to first class. An extra fee of $12, payable at the first class, will be charged for your florist-provided flowers in the tussie mussie class and for a foam base and preservative for the boxwood wreath.

Instructor: LLI member Betsy Eggleston has been gardening and making flower arrangements since childhood. As a teenager, she and her mother entered a flower show where they won a blue ribbon for their arrangement featuring moss, stones, and skunk cabbages. She has taken horticulture classes at Blue Ridge Community College and has attended numerous flower arranging workshops. Several flower arrangers from this area will be working with this class.

This course is limited to 10 participants.
