Deck the halls with a gorgeous succulent wreath that you make! Join us for this fun, hands-on workshop where you'll make your own wreath from a wide variety of succulents while enjoying a glass (or two) of wine. The class will be lead by artist Monique Capanelli of Articulture Designs. Plants, materials and drinks are included.
About the artist: Monique Capanelli launched Articulture Designs in 2009 to merge her love of plants, horticulture, and art. Her signature living walls frame one-of-a-kind breathing breathing plantscapes where one would expect a painting to hang. In her table-top arrangements, Capanelli delights in creating little worlds to explore. She also provides sustainable landscape design and event decor through her studio. With Articulture Designs, Art is Alive. Literally. Learn more at www.ArticultureDesigns.com.
