This season we are bringing Sonoma county’s bounty of blooms down to the city for a new collaboration between B-Side Farm and Crimson Horticultural Rarities. Join us for a workshop in Temescal Alley where we aim to overwhelm the senses with a sea of color and texture.

Whether you’re new to flowers or have been dabbling all along, you’ll find a comfortable and supportive environment in this small, hands-on class. It’s late spring and the flowers are going off, so the options are many. We’ll be working with a variety of flowers from elegant heirloom garden roses, to Icelandic poppies and English sweet peas, and bring them down to earth with wild and messy things like queen anne’s lace, blackberries on the branch, love-in-a-mist, and Oakland’s own roadside weeds.

This is how it will go down:

Allison and Lennie will orient you to the flowers grown at B-Side and other local farms, and then design two mid-size, sprawling arrangements side-by-side, explaining their unique techniques all the while. You’ll get to see two different styles and decide which one resonates with you, while you snack and sip the afternoon away. You’ll then dive into making an arrangement of your own, drawing from any flowers that speak to you and getting as much or as little guidance from the teachers as you should want.

Price includes all materials, light refreshments, a stellar vase housing your gorgeous arrangement to take home and display for all the world to see, and focused instruction in a small class setting from these two floral professionals.  



Send us your info below and we'll let you know as soon as our classes are open.
