U.S. Botanic Garden invites you to their event

NEW DATE: Floral Wearables with Wire and Tape: Preparing for Parties (Online Demonstration)

About this event

Dress up your party look with floral DIY! Floral wire and tape are important tools when it comes to design for both flowers and other plant material. Join Arrin and learn what situations call for which techniques and how to best employ them. To demonstrate, Arrin will make a boutonniere and a hair piece.

To learn more about using floral adhesive and see a demonstration for a modern wrist corsage, please check out Arrin's previous USBG online program, Floral Wearables with Adhesive.

Intended Audience: Beginner. Suitable for budding learners, this program contains introductory level information for getting started on the topic.
