Course Description

The instructor advises a student on the placement of a botanical element.

The instructors will demonstrate several techniques and then help you create your favorite version of a seasonal fall arrangement. All plant materials will be collected fresh from the Arboretum grounds. Each student will create an arrangement to take home.
