Vanita florals are designed in the Pacific Northwest using locally grown and wild-foraged flora. Each arrangement is created in tribute to the balance and contrast of the living world—neither too harsh nor exuberantly pretty.
This Artisan Friday class will start with a demonstration and discussion about floral technique, color, line, contrast, and tools. Then we begin! Instructor, Stephanie Downes, will provide a printed recipe that includes some guidance on what to choose from the floral bar. As you sip on wine or enjoy a slice of homemade pie, we want you to feel inspired. Stephanie will be there to assist with any questions you may have as you create a small centerpiece.
The entire process will take 2 hours and your ticket includes all materials and instruction.
Materials Included: flowers, vase, inner vase structure, tape, flower food, instruction
Wine & bites available for purchase
About the maker: Stephanie Downes grew up in the woods, on a beautiful, old piece of woods in the Pacific Northwest, in a cabin her family built. The cabin is a simple, sturdy place, in unison with its surroundings. It’s elegant that way. Charming and rough. Stephanie’s vision for floral art comes from this place: where ancient cedar trees cradle the foundation and sword ferns guard the gate. A wondrous place to be a child. There she learned hard work and a tender trust in the medicine of being in the woods.
