PERU, Vt. – Green Mountain Gardeners invites you to join your neighbors and local gardeners for a hands-on presentation with sustainable floral designer, Capucine Barr, on Nov. 6, 2017. The presentation is open to the public and will take place from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Peru Town Hall, 402 Main St, Peru. Barr’s designs will be raffled off and a complimentary lunch will be served.
Barr will show attendees how to create novel floral designs that are sustainable (can be reused or recycled) for the fall and upcoming holidays. She’ll inspire you to use seasonal flowers, floral design ingredients, and hidden gems from your own backyard, gardens, and fields. Barr’s designs are based on her knowledge of plant, color and textures to go beyond traditional offerings of a florist, incorporating wild crafting and preference for seasonal flora.
Capucine Barr, owner of Petals Floral Studio in Rawsonville, Vt., has over 20 years experience as a master gardener. Born and raised in New York City, Barr moved to Vermont in 1982. Her life in Vermont, and time spent in Nantucket, Conn. gave her a deep appreciation of beauty in all forms and through all seasons. She studied floristry at Stratford College and the New York School of Floral Design while establishing Petals Floral Studio, which she opened in 2017.
What a wonderful way to get ready for Thanksgiving and upcoming holidays. The GMG is pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to everyone in our community. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by Nov. 2 with Helen Hamman by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
