Letting the Flowers Talk: Spring-Themed Flower Arrangement Workshop
Saturday, April 6, 1 – 3 pm
Mahonia Studio, 822 East Market St, 40206
Street parking available
Both as a class and individually, we will learn the concept of designing while “letting the flowers talk” through natural form and movement as well as developing an understanding of flowers as an art medium. Learn proper handling of cut flowers for longevity and, of course, fabricate and take home a floral design using readily accessible materials.
Instructor: Mike Ojeda
Mike joined Mahonia Studio in 2016, and currently leads their floral program as lead designer, and floral coordinator. With a background in photography and design that spans beyond just floral work, Ojeda continues to apply non-floral concepts to his practice as an exercise of experimentation. His work pulls inspiration from nature and the organic movement in growth; the altered use of materials and method, as seen in the Japanese practice of Ikebana; and the work of masters, and contemporary makers throughout the visual art, fashion, and music world.
REGISTRATION FOR THIS CLASS CLOSED AT 11:59pm ON TUESDAY, APRIL 2
