EARTH FRIENDLY FLORAL DESIGN: MEDICINAL CENTERPIECES

Thu Jul 27 2017, 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM

Join Melissa Lafontaine, owner of Earth Within Flowers, for this month’s installation of her Sun in Bloom series in partnership with MUD. Melissa will teach about medicinal properties of flowers and basic design principles that will guide participants in creating their own beautiful centerpiece. Discuss the healing and spiritual benefits of local medicinal herbs, flowers and foliage and tap into your intuition during the design process at this hands-on workshop. Locally grown flowers, herbs, and a vintage vase will be provided. All will be able to take home their arrangement.

Earth Within Flowers offers the community an earth-friendly alternative to flower sourcing. Melissa procures flowers from local and regional farmers and ethically forages foliage from the natural environment. She is trained as an herbalist and ethnobotanist and shares the sentimental and healing nature of flowers through her designs.

This workshop has a limited number of participants. Sign up by July 20! Cost $20 MUD Member $40 Non-Member
