Oak Blossom's Floral Workshop
What is "ALL ABOUT WREATH BASICS"
"All About Wreath Basics" is a 4 day workshop held August 23rd-26th at 6:00 pm each evening. The workshop will focus on the basic fundamentals of designing a grapevine wreath using silk florals. By the end of this workshop, you will have an understanding of the basic tools needed in floral design, how to make a bow, and how to create your very own wreath.
*This is not the wreath we will be creating, but it will be something similar.
Have you ever seen a beautiful wreath in someone's home or at a store and said to yourself "I wish I could make that"? Well guess what, we are here to show you how! During our 4 day workshop, I will be spending time with you live inside a private Facebook Group. I will be instructing you on the tools and basic fundamentals of wreath making. Don't worry if you are unable to attend the live, you will be able to watch the replay inside the group.
This is what you can expect to learn during the week of the basic workshop...

Day 1 will be filled with tons of designer information! Everything you need to know in making your very first wreath.
BASIC TOOLS ~ One of the best things you can do is to invest in the proper floral design tools and supplies. It is like any professional painter, photographer, seamstress etc. You must have the correct tools and supplies to create with. We will discuss the basic tools used in floral design. You will receive a printable PDF with design tool information and where you can purchase the items you need for this project.
