February 20, 2019

As part of a scented suite of workshops associated with Perfume and Seduction, Hillwood Museum is hosting a workshop on Saturday, February 23, 2019 on Fragrant Floral Design. The class is from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. 


The power of scent can transform a home, evoking pleasant memories and creating joy.

In this hands-on workshop you'll create a stunning flower arrangement of fragrant blooms which are increasingly rare in commercial growing environments.


All materials are included. The completed arrangement will be approximately twelve inches wide. The fragrant blooms selected for your use will depend on seasonal availability.
