Sustainable Flower Design with Chelsea Willis
Teacher: Chelsea Willis
In this class we will focus on the importance of sustainability in floral design which includes designing without floral foam which is a non biodegradable plastic product, using only locally and organically grown flowers that support pollinators, and being mindful of the waste we produce during our design installation. You will learn hands-on how to use sustainable design techniques in floral design, learning harvesting tips and tricks while picking the freshest blooms from the farm followed by a course on design mechanics that are environmentally friends and sustainable. The group will build a large installation piece together and each individual will leave with a piece of the design.
No previous experience necessary. This workshop will be held on Sauvie Island, Oregon. Class will be running, rain or shine. Open to students 16 & up. Please leave dogs at home.
