Join us in person for Spring Floral Basket Workshop on Thursday, April 14 at 3 PM.

Learn how to become your own florist by joining Emily Bader, professional florist and expert flower show judge, in this program on creating your own spring arrangement. You’ll learn how to prepare flowers using oasis form, how to condition flowers, and how to understand the placement of flowers and greenery using principles of art: rhythm, contrast, dominance, balance, proportion, and scale.

Special Instructions: This program’s fee covers the supplemental materials provided to attendees. Participants are asked to bring their own clippers and floral scissors.

By participating in this session, you can expect to:

  • understand how your designs can be your own choice, not a copy.
  • learn the placement of flowers for the best impact.
  • know which flowers have a longer lifespan and how to increase this.

This program is presented by Emily Bader and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
