Floral Design


Intro to Floral Design
We will cover the principles and elements of Floral Design, as well as fresh flower care and handling. A hands-on workshop will be included in each class session. All flowers, materials, and tools will be provided you can take home each project. While this is more of an educational program, the atmosphere is casual and the material we’ll work with is lovely. We’ll use a different combination of florals each week. Topics covered: Harmony and Unity; Proportion and Scale; Rhythm and Emphasis; Balance and Symmetry. An additional materials fee of $100 (cash or check) is required, payable to the instructor at the first class. Class is taught by floral designer, Cindy Mattson of Given Erwin Florist. (10 hours) $99
Fall Dates TBD

Indoor Organic Composting
This one night class will teach you how to create and maintain a healthy compost bin that will be fully operational during winter months and beyond.

You will be able to compost many things such as coffee, tea, junk mail, egg containers, fruits and vegetable peels, and more. You will take home a 1/2 lb. container of a compost starter kit, which contains all the micro and macro organisms that are needed to start a perfectly healthy, organic, functioning compost bin. This class will take place at Minuteman Technical School, 758 Marrett Road, Lexington, MA. Registration is through Middlesex Community College. (2 Hours) $60. Not eligible for tuition waivers.
