Fall is a beautiful time of year to take in the beauty of the natural world but with shorter days and chilly nights we find ourselves spending more time indoors. Embrace the changing of the seasons by bringing a bit of the outdoors inside. Join sustainable farmer/florist Molly Culver of Molly Oliver Flowers and Urban Farmer Deborah Greig for a hands on floral wreath making workshop using dried flowers! You'll learn how to create a decorative wreath perfect for November home decorating, how to source locally grown flowers, what flowers dry best, and how to dry flowers for optimal quality, color and longevity. Each participant will get to take home their handmade floral wreath. All materials and cozy fall refreshments included.
This class will take place in our indoor loft space located on the 11th floor of Building 3 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Detailed directions can be found by following the link below.
About Molly Oliver Flowers
Molly Oliver Flowers was founded by urban farmers Molly Culver and Deborah Greig. In addition to designing with flowers, Molly manages the 1-acre Youth Farm in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, where she grows vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers and trains adults in sustainable agriculture techniques. Deborah is Assistant Manager at Queens County Farm, the oldest established farm in New York City. Molly Oliver Flowers sources its flowers from small farms located within 200 miles of New York City in an effort to offer a sustainable approach to floral design, and to support family farmers who in turn support the local economy and our soils, waters, and ecosystems. We are constantly humbled and inspired by the inimitability of the natural world, and love to call upon the flowers, fruits and foliage thriving in any season to capture a mood, create an experience, and bring incomparable beauty to any event.
