Have you ever wondered how to turn a bunch of flowers into a creative display? It doesn’t matter if you don’t know honeysuckle from a hornet’s nest, a new demonstration at the Shawville Fair Homecraft building will show you how to construct a handsome bouquet.
Put on by local florist Chelsea Smith, the hour long class is scheduled for Aug. 1 at 5 p.m. and promises to teach budding decorators a thing or two about composition.
“It’s going to be a demonstration of me doing a flower arrangement and teaching people how to do it themselves with flowers from the garden, grocery store or florist,” she said. “I’ll be stopping for questions in between speaking. Going though step by step the materials you’ll need, the flowers that I’m using, how to trim them properly and so forth.”
