Essentially Seasonal Design Series Pt IV


Essentially Seasonal | Fall: Transition

Instructor: Holly Carlisle

Sunday, November 3 | 2-5 p.m.

Birmingham Botanical Gardens

Single class—Members: $185 | Non-Members: $200

A seasonally focused floristry demonstration, workshop, and discussion series led by the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Holly Carlisle of Rosegolden, in the spirit of local floristry legend Beth McReynolds and her iconic "Birmingham Style." The classes will focus first how to approach designing with a seasonally specific concept. Holly will demonstrate, then, participants will get to create their own arrangements with Holly’s guidance. All materials will be provided. To see more of Holly's work, click here. Fall: Transition Embrace change as you learn how to prominently feature fall’s transitioning foliage as nature enters its fully ripened state and begins the descent into dormancy. Create a structural arrangement using woody materials as identified during a walk through the Southern Living and McReynolds Gardens. These will be built in a vessel prepared with a flower frog and chicken wire.
