Camp Bloom is back! Join Andrea Ferment, owner of Honeygirl Flowers, at The Center for the latest Camp Bloom, Jr. Workshop. Participants for this new “Hello, Spring!” workshop should sign up in pairs…think “mom and daughter” or “big sis and little sis” or “father and son”…the combinations are endless, but one person should be old enough to occasionally help the younger person if needed. In this two-hour workshop, campers will create three nature-inspired pieces to help us all look forward to Spring. Campers will work together to make:
-one spring fresh-flower centerpiece
-cherry blossom watercolor paintings
-one fresh and one long-lasting piece of floral jewelry
Each piece will use a different artistic technique and material, and each will allow us to explore and appreciate the natural world around us in new ways. Come to the Center to Welcome Spring with us! To view slideshows and pictures from last summer’s week-long camp and this past December’s first junior camp workshop, check out this link on the Honeygirl…Flowers and More website.
Add an additional person to your pair for $30!
