NEW CLASSES WITH the NYBG!



How exciting to have the illustrious New York Botanical Garden ask us to teach classes with them! Like an invitation to lunch with the Queen! We couldn't be more excited to share this with you...

Saturday, June 4th
10:00am-3:30pm
In this intensive one day workshop we'll start with a tour of the gardens led by the garden curators of the NYBG! After the tour we'll break for lunch then head inside for a few hours of floral arranging. Taking inspiration from our magnificent surroundings we'll make lush, wild arrangements that evoke the nuances of the cutting garden. We'll be using peonies, lambs ear, columbine, bearded iris, alliums, clematis, scabiosa, herbs, young blueberry, astilbe, dogwood as well as some very special cuttings from the grounds of the garden!
