Flower Crown Workshop Recap

We had our first Flower Crown Workshop at the studio on June 18th, and it was amazing!! Jenna Bechtholt was there to capture all the magic, and her photos really convey the focus, fun, and talent that were the hallmarks of the evening. I was completely blown away by the beautiful crowns that everyone made- I think you will agree as you look at the photos that everyone did amazing work!

We started out with a demo where I showed the mechanics of creating both simple and asymmetrical crowns, and then everyone got to work creating their own, unique crown. Students chose from a wide variety of flowers, and everyone's creativity really came out as people chose their ingredients and started working.

I floated around the room answering questions and helping if anyone got stuck, and also continued to give more tips and demonstration throughout the class.

As the ladies started finishing up their crowns, Jenna took each person outside to photograph them wearing their crowns. Look at these gorgeous woman with their gorgeous crowns!!!! I loved how everyone's crowns were so different, reflecting each person's style and color preferences.

At the very end of the workshop we had a few minutes to relax on the back porch of the studio, surrounded by the Cutting Garden. We had a great time! It is pretty hard to feel anything other than joyful when you have a flower crown on your head, and are talking with a bunch of amazing women who are also wearing flower crowns.....

We are planning a few more workshops for the fall- we don't have any specific dates set yet, but if you would like to be on the list to find out about future workshops, please email Kelly and emailbotanique{at}gmail{dot}com. Our workshops are small, with a six person maximum, so you get a lot of personal attention and can get all your questions answered. They also fill up quick! So let us know if you want to be added to the list to get first dibs on future workshops.

A big thank you to Jenna for taking such magical photos of the workshop!! Please check out her website at this link. And thank you to the amazing women who attended the workshop- you all blew me away with your talent and creativity!
