Last spring our first-ever From Flowers to FOREST event was a huge hit! It was so enjoyable for us to see our artists inspire other creators to make some truly lovely floral arrangements. We are delighted to be partnering with Derby Farm Flowers & Gardens again this year to bring you another fun and festive floral event during Capitol Square's annual Spring in the Square celebration on Saturday, April 7.
From Flowers to FOREST will begin with a workshop at Derby Farm from 12-2 pm. Derby Farm will give you some pointers and blooms, and you'll design a floral arrangement prompted by a work of art from our current exhibition 13WOMEN. If you're looking for ideas, see some of last year's creations below.
When you’re done, bring your flowers across the street to display next to their inspiration at 13FOREST Gallery and enjoy refreshments at our exhibition reception from 2-4 pm.
The workshop is for any ability level, and there are limited spaces available but we will do our best to accommodate drop-ins. The price of the workshop is $40 and includes instruction, vase, and blooms. To register for the workshop please call Derby Farm at 781-643-0842.
Please feel welcome to join us at the reception even if you did not participate in the workshop. Come help us celebrate spring!
