Join Hill Center & Keith Stanley for the second event of our new series focused on local businesses and makers!
Floral designer and educator Keith Stanley will lead a workshop focused on sustainable techniques for creating unique floral designs. In this class, the focus will be on ideas that don’t use floral foam, but instead use natural structures to create a variety of designs. With sustainability in mind, the flowers will come from a local flower grower. At the end, each participant will have a lovely sustainable design to take home!
The perfect Spring activity to celebrate Mother’s Day!
All materials will be provided plus complimentary beer & wine!
