DIY Boutonnieres & Corsages

Do you find yourself longing for a departure from the traditional boutonnieres and corsages? Floral designer Grace Moody will help you expand your skills beyond the basics of boutonniere and corsage crafting and delve into the art of creating contemporary floral wearables. You will master the art of using floral glue correctly and learn how to design and make sophisticated floral boutonniere pocket squares and corsage cuffs. To get the most out of this workshop, it is recommended that you have already taken the Garden’s Basic Floral Design Part I, or other introductory floral design class.
