Bask in the late spring glow of the rolling hills while learning how to create an organic looking flower from crepe paper.
As a flower lover, you look forward to the summer season when the peonies are in full bloom. There is no other flower that carries as much romance and beauty in all its varieties and forms. But they are fleeting, their beauty only appreciated for a short while, until they are a sweet memory...until now.
We will capture the essence of the peony flower by reproducing her dancing, billowing petals in paper. Working with premium crepe papers from Italy, Catherine will guide you through the process of creating an organic and realistic representation of this gorgeous bloom for you to enjoy for years to come*.
What better way to enjoy the floral offerings of late spring than to hand select blooms in the gardens of Country Cut Flowers. Pick your own fresh arrangement to take home with you, and slip your paper bloom in the arrangement and fool them all 😊 Light refreshments will be served.
All materials are included; however we ask that you please bring a sharp pair of scissors for the workshop (or purchase on site for an additional charge). No prior experience is necessary.

"There is a need for courses that reflect the true character and spirit of living flowers. This allows each artist’s creativity to blossom from a first foundation of accurate realism, ensuring we work from the original basis of the beauty we found so alluring. From there, your journey is your own."
