Join award-winning floral arranger Lynne Merrill for a series of floral design classes at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum, 101 Ferry Road (Route 114) in Bristol, Rhode Island. During this four-week series, Lynne will provide tips for harvesting, cleaning, and conditioning flowers as well as basic instruction of flower arranging. Each week will highlight a different design principle, in order to explore various floral design trends in color, materials, and arrangement styles. Then, using your own artistic expression, you can create a take-home centerpiece each session. Students will be asked to bring your own containers and shears.
