GROW / HARVEST / DESIGN: THE LATE SUMMER GARDEN September 24th, 2017 10am-5pm Late summer is the season of abundance. Our Cutting Garden beds are spilling over into the garden’s pathways, as the flowers give their final push for the year before taking a long winter’s nap. Join Kelly Sullivan, owner and creative director of Botanique, for a day spent in the garden and the studio. We will spend the first part of the day in Botanique’s Cutting Garden, where Kelly will share insights into how to plan and care for flowers in the late summer garden. Participants will then be set loose in the garden with clippers and a bucket, and invited to cut flowers to use in their own arrangements. After lunch, we will head into the studio, where Kelly will guide attendees in creating a gorgeous, seasonal arrangement in Botanique’s lush, natural, signature style, incorporating the flowers harvested earlier in the day. Participants will have ample time to create their own beautiful piece. The last part of the day will be spent styling and photographing student work for portfolio and personal use, with one of Botanique’s preferred photographers. Investment: $525 includes all materials, lunch, snacks and professional photography of your work. This workshop is limited to seven students, and requires five students to run. Workshop is open to all levels.
