NOVEMBER 16 | Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival | CREATIVE COVEY: FLORAL WORKSHOP | CHOF + Thomasville Center for the Arts
The Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival isn't complete until there's something for the makers! Meet us in Thomasville, Georgia to make and take using seasonal plants and botanicals for a living centerpiece that's faux real!
Come celebrate the season’s bounty with a two-hour floral design workshop, artfully presented by Ashley HomeStore while under the creative direction of 2017 Mayesh Design Star, Christy Hulsey of Colonial House of Flowers.
We’ll be talking about liberating techniques to create a texture-full piece that combines all the elements -- wood, earth, fire and ice. How about that for being naturally awesome?
You’ll work with a premium recipe featuring succulents, moss and air plants of the season sourced from local growers and around the world. Workshop Includes:
- Demonstration + instruction of Christy’s creative process in arranging plants in centerpieces.
- Q&A opportunity with Christy
- Take-home container
- Take-home supplies
- Take-home floral design
- Take-home professional photograph by Sarah Brooke Photography
- Entry to the Fine Art Show & Sale
I've never wanted to stick flowers around just because —I want to make art people live with, love, give, share and remember... in a way that's easy and meaningful. Almost everywhere I go I think, "everybody can do this." I want to make our lives happier, intentional, more beautiful, smarter and more alive through flowers.
When I'm in cotton or linen I feel most myself, in time worn leather booties, or in very high heels. Rarely, do I say no to good coffee. I love learning, finding the best nature and humananity have to offer, the balance of simple and complex, rich and poor, young and old, feminine and masculine, raw and refined. I believe just about everything is in the story.
I live with children, Beatrice and Whitaker, and two Siamese cats Louis and Stella in Atlanta (barely north of the city in Roswell, Georgia, which makes it aa day's drive from St. Simons and pretty close to Athens). My redheaded husband and business partner, Brian, lives and works in Statesboro in between our frequent visits.
