Floral Design Techniques


6:30pm to 8:30pm
Adults: $50
Member Adults: $45

You asked…and we listened! Last year several participants in our floral design classes had requested a class to learn basic floral design techniques—and then put those skills to use creating a floral arrangement. Janet Gallagher, AIFD designer and Kishwaukee College instructor, will lead the group through a series of tutorials of floral mechanics: taping and wiring, differences in working with fresh, dried and silk plant materials, designing with foam versus chicken wire vs vase arrangements among other items. And, if you have a particular question about a previous design that didn’t work out well for you–bring that question with you!

To wrap up the instruction, you will be creating a fun Halloween floral display that will use all the techniques you have just been taught. Please bring a shallow box or tray to easily transport your design home—and a hand pruner and wire cutter if you happen to have those tools.
