Saturday, January 26 at 10:00 a.m: English Garden Basket Workshop

English Garden Baskets make great gifts, centerpieces and can be used throughout the year. At our class, designer Debbie Wentz will teach you about the different plants to use, design methods and you will even be able to make one of your own.  Be sure to bring a basket from home or choose from our wide selection to create a beautiful display for your home. The only cost is the materials used. While our workshop is free to attend, space is limited.

Our two hour workshop gives Bonsai enthusiasts a chance for one-on-one instruction with our on-staff Bonsai expert Dan Kosta.  Each participant will create a Boxwood Bonsai to take home with them.  We will supply the trees and the tools, but participants are welcome to bring any of their own tools to use.  This workshop will last two hours, costs $35/person and is limited to 12 people.
