WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION INCLUDING LEARNING OBJECTIVES
During this two-hour workshop, you will have the opportunity to create a half wreath adorned with preserved hydrangeas, dried baby’s breath, and other dried flowers. You will be presented with two options: a vibrant rainbow wreath featuring colorful hydrangeas on a gold wreath ring, or a more natural wreath showcasing white hydrangeas on a grapevine wreath (please refer to the provided sample photos). Throughout the workshop, you will receive detailed guidance, ensuring you are guided step by step. Additionally, you will have the freedom to select dried flowers according to your preferences, allowing you to personalize and create a unique wreath of your own.
These flowers are not artificial; rather, they are preserved and dried, ensuring their longevity if cared for properly.
