J. Schwanke, host of Life in Bloom, will conduct a floral workshop Saturday, Feb. 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. in NPT’s Studio A (161 Rains Ave., Nashville TN 37203). In this unique workshop, Schwanke will demonstrate tips, tricks and techniques for arranging and enjoying beautiful flowers. The event will include a hands-on lesson on creating a flower crown using simple techniques, foliage and seasonal flowers. This small-group workshop will allow one-on-one support throughout the process.
Schwanke will sign copies of Fun with Flowers – Your Guide to Selecting, Arranging and Enjoying Beautiful Flowers and his latest book, Bloom 365 – The Essential Guide to Arranging Flowers Every Day. Both books will be available for purchase at the event.
Tickets are available at bloom-npt.eventbrite.com and are $80 per person or $120 for admission and copies of Bloom 365 and Fun with Flowers.
