Make your own flower-crown
Mid-summer chic or Coachella cool, flower crowns are now a staple of the festival-summer season. This floral-crown making workshop is one of the most therapeutic of the five classes as it involves participants weaving flowers in delicate ways using intricate wiring techniques. As well as making whimsical head dresses, attendees will learn how to make corsages and buttonholes, too. A handy know-how during wedding season!
