NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University’s SFA Gardens will host a floral design workshop to share methods for creating artistic flower arrangements from 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 13 in the Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center.
Jordan Cunningham, SFA Gardens greenhouse technician, will explore the principles of floral design, including shapes, colors, materials and construction.
"This year, we will be exploring the elements of floral design using both common plants from the garden and traditional floral materials," Cunningham said. "We want to use the resources here at SFA Gardens to show people how they can use materials from their own garden to make floral works of art.”
Participants will create their own floral arrangements to take home. All materials will be provided, but attendees are welcome to bring flowers and greens from their own gardens to add to their arrangements, or a vase of their own.
Cost for the seminar is $25 for members of SFA Gardens and $35 for nonmembers. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required at sfasu.edu/sfagardens.
