Workshop | Petals & Paint

November 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Learn how to arrange a bouquet of fresh flowers, and then how to paint the flowers in watercolor!

Floral Design and Watercolor Painting combine for a unique workshop with Petals & Paint!


First, you will be guided by floral designer Jenny Preston (@portandpalmco) will lead you through the step-by-step process of creating your very own floral arrangement. You’ll walk away with a basic knowledge of processing flowers, how to use certain types of floral design elements, mechanics, and general design rules to follow! The arrangement will be created in a reusable vessel that you can take home and continue creating flower arrangements with the skills you pick up in the workshop.


Second, Grace Gdaniec will guide you step by step using watercolor paint on paper in creating the different types of flowers from your bouquet, and how to build the composition of the arrangement on to paper.


Attendees will leave with a floral bouquet and watercolor painting unique to themselves (you are able to format the bouquet however you’d like!) at the end of class, along with skills to use in the future! Everyone has a different story and leaves with a different arrangement and painting completely unique to their own creativity.


What’s included: Workshop fee includes all materials to create the floral arrangement and watercolor painting! Please note, flowers may vary each workshop session.

Complimentary sparkling water or soda (Beer and spiked seltzer available for purchase!)
