Add Your Heading Text Here

Join us for a heartfelt gathering at the Keepsake Flower Memorial Garden in Garden City, MI, USA. This special event will take place at 6221 Merriman Road, where we’ll come together to honor and remember our loved ones.
Cost: $45
Click HERE to purchase ticket(s)
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!
