Beautiful things come in small packages, and the springtime garden is a jewel box of wearable flowers.  Come away from this floral design workshop with a custom corsage to gift your mom, grandmother, aunt, or beloved maternal figure just in time for Mother’s Day.  Martha Keen, Wyck’s Horticulturist and Landscape Manager, will teach students:

  • a bit of corsage and posey history
  • the mechanics of how to wire and glue flowers and ribbons
  •  a recipe for a fetching design

This class is open to adults, as well as boys and girls in 8th grade and up.  Participants will leave with two finished pieces of their own making.  All materials and supplies will be provided, but please bring a pair of pruners and a hot glue gun if you own them.


Thank you to everyone who participated!
