We are so excited to invite you to Hope Flower Farm for a morning of creative writing with Slow Flower Founder Debra Prinzing and a floral design demonstration done by Holly Chapple!
Where? Hope Flower Farm
When? July 27th 2021 from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM
The morning will begin with a discussion between Debra Prinzing and Holly Chapple including updates about a future product they are working on. Holly will demonstrate the creation of a large urn or compote using Hope Flower Farm Flowers. We will make note of the words used to describe the flowers and the shape and form of the design. Once Hollys design is complete Debra Prinzing will take you through a creative writing exercise which will help you best describe your floral creations. This skill will help you describe flowers and the art of floral design in a new way.The demonstration and exercise will take place in our newly designed air conditioned studio space.
Your ticket will include a beautifully curated charcuterie box and we welcome guests to stay after the workshop and picnic at the farm. Holly will be available to chat about the property and our beautiful blooms. If you would like to take home a farm fresh bouquet please preorder your bouquet as you register for the class. Our Hope Flower Farm gift shop will be open and Holly's product line can be purchased on site.
