Wood Flower Dyeing

Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 10am

Dyeing flowers is fun and easy. Great workshop with our help you leave with a finished project and flowers to decorate with at home.
 
Your workshop will include 5 undyed Flower Heads 1-4.5″ in diameter and your choice of 2 Wood dye colors 2 oz each. You will also choose a wood cutout or metal vase for a finished wall hanging or centerpiece along with a dozen pre-dyed flowers.
Flowers can be used for wood projects, creating center pieces, party decor.
Why choose wood flowers?
Sola wood flowers do not die. Wood flowers are ageless. You do not have to worry that the arrangements that you create will be destroyed after a few days or weeks. So, if you need them for a venue, then you can avoid the necessary regular replacement that arrangements and decorations made from natural flowers need. And if you need them for an event, then you can reuse them for future events as well. You only need to create the arrangements and decorations once, and you will be able to use them for years.

Class cost $38

Location:
Historic Oddfellows Hall
6121 Merriman Rd.

Learn how to incorporate your loved one’s ashes into glass artwork and create a forever keepsake piece. In the example shown, cremation ashes are located at the bottom (in the ground) and in the center of the flower. The flowers symbolizes that you grew because of them…. and that you continue to grow because of them. The ashes can be from a special loved one or you may combine ashes so that they are together in your beautiful piece of art.
This is a beautiful piece and I will help you start with the flower (the focal point) and show you how to dam the ashes so that they are secure and fill in the background for a beautiful contour fuse in the kiln. Your project will be complete and delivered back to the Farmhouse (where we have the class) in 10-12 days.
If you chose the pay by mail option, approx 3-4 weeks prior to class you will receive an email with mailing instructions and deduct your $5 deposit. No refunds on the deposit.
If you would like to create the flower without the ashes, still join us!
