Enjoy a morning on the shaded Gamble patio and learn how to create a stunning floral centerpiece. The beauty of the Gamble gardens will inspire us as we design a luxurious arrangement filled with seasonal blooms using foam free mechanics.

Katherine will share tips on how to purchase, care for and design with the best the summer season has to offer. You will leave class with a cheerful arrangement to further enjoy at home and with some newly found floral design skills.

All materials provided. Please bring your favorite pair of floral shears to use. Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to offer shared tools.

Please come and join us for our first outdoor design experience of the summer.
