Make your own creative bouquet this season while enjoying the outdoors. Mikko will be hosting this workshop in our sunny front yard all while sipping on coffee, getting messy and playing with the beautiful spring blooms. Discover the magic of our spring flora and learn new techniques to build your very own magnificent arrangement, to take home with fresh seasonal blooms. Annie Lord will guide you through each step; from flower selection, processing the stems, constructing a beautiful design, and making a beautiful and lasting bouquet. Working with the tools of the trade, you'll walk away with some industry tips and the confidence to make a memorable DIY bouquet with any flowers you choose. This class is perfect for any creative wanting to add a new skill, for team-building and for the whole family.
Light snacks and beverage will be provided. 12 students will be able to join the class to provide plenty of one-on-one instruction. We will be walking in the surrounding woods, so be sure to bring appropriate footwear and clothing.

Annie Lord is a floral artist and forager since 2015. She offers bouquets of wild flowers from her weekly pickings in nature, which she completes with a range of garden flowers, grown in the Laurentians. On the sidelines of the flower industry and imported flowers, she works with the plants around us to create real microscosms in each bouquet. Inspired primarily by the surrounding ecosystems, his work is embedded in an eco-responsible approach. It offers services for weddings, events, summer markets and small group flower workshops.
