In this workshop, sip on Craft beer & wine while we create a succulent centerpiece that incorporates pops of fresh floral. Bring your own vessel with a 12-14 inch opening. It can be glass, ceramic, or be creative with unusual items that have personal significance. The plant-based centerpiece can last for months or years with simple care. The flexible design will allow for changing out the floral components as needed. Drinks, Plants, fresh flowers, and materials (except vessel) will be provided. The class will be led by Monique Capanelli of Articulture Designs.

Tickets are limited and will not be sold at the door. (sales end 3/30/15 at midnight)
