Holiday Potting Demo & Calligraphy Workshop
Join us for a Holiday-themed workshop! We’ve partnered with Elisabeth of Raise Your Words Lettering for our last workshop of 2019, held in the Gray Apple Garden Shed at Hueters Greenhouses.
During the workshop, all guests will learn some techniques on forcing indoor blooms in time for Christmas. Each guest will create their own potted arrangement with Paperwhite Narcissus, an elegant and classic forced winter flower. Paperwhites make great decor for the holidays, serving as a living centerpiece for your tablescape or scattered throughout a fresh garland for an elegant mantle topper. (Psst… they also make great gifts!)
Elisabeth will lead participants through a tutorial on hand-lettered calligraphy before you have the opportunity to practice your newfound skills by creating hand-lettered gift tags and ornament.
Workshop registration covers all materials needed, as well as hot cocoa bar, cookies and light refreshments. Receive a discount on tickets when you register with a group of 4 or more!
SIPS & STEMS
Enjoy the magic of the flower farm while we share our locally-grown blooms and leave with an arrangement of your own. Our workshops begin with a walk through the flower field. We’ll share our farming practices, point out unique plants (and animals), and select a few focal flowers for our arrangements.
After the tour, we return to the barn for a quick demonstration of basic flower arranging techniques and design principles. Then, it’s your turn! We’ll have plenty of cut flowers, fillers and greens on hand so that each guest can create a unique arrangement based on their own personal style, taste and creativity!
We will provide all flowers, tools, supplies and keepsake vase for each guest. All workshops feature an artisan charcuterie board filled with cheeses, meats and savory nibbles, sweet treats, water and ice. Guests are invited to bring their own alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage; we will provide water and an iced beverage tub to keep your drinks cool!
Workshops last approximately 2 hours; following the workshop session, feel free to relax with a drink and enjoy our farm as long as you like!
Workshops are limited to 15 to ensure a personal and intimate experience (see below for private groups of 8 or more!)
Events are held rain or shine; in the event of rain or extreme heat, workshops will be held in the barn
While we anticipate a sell out, we require a minimum of 8 guests in order to hold each event
