Sample a slice of Hillwood’s bountiful gardens with this exclusive floral design workshop. For more than 60 years, lush floral arrangements have been created from Hillwood’s Cutting Garden. This hands-on class starts with a tour of the Cutting Garden, where our gardeners grow over 50 different types of annual and perennial cut flowers. You’ll learn how flower crops are harvested and prepared for use, as well as learning which blooms were selected for your own arrangement, along with other supplies ordered in. Participants will then head into the greenhouse to learn practical floral arranging techniques and new design concepts while creating a stunning arrangement to take home.
Led by Jason Gedeik, Hillwood’s head of design operations. This program is limited to 10 people, and must have a minimum of 4 participants to take place. In the unlikely event that this workshop is cancelled, participants may choose to participate in another session. All materials are included.
