Making Wreaths and Ornaments with Succulents, with Caitlin Atkinson
For adults, join master crafter Caitlin Anderson for a session creating your own holiday decorations: wreaths made with succulents and seasonal botanicals as well as a special ornament for your tree or hearth. Caitlin is the author of “Plant Craft: 30 Projects that add Natural Style to your home.” A freelance photographer and stylist with gardens, interiors, and still life, she worked in floral design and at Flora Grubb Gardens as interior merchandiser, where she acquired a vast knowledge of gardening indoors and houseplant care, and honed her skills in display making. Her craft ideas are fresh, simple, and bring the outdoors in.
Fee for Making a Succulent Wreath and Ornament workshop: $35 per person. Includes materials.
REGISTER at MAGC.ORG or call (415)455-5260
Copies of “Plant Craft” and a selection of other great gift books will be available for sale.
