Lavender Festival - Tussie Mussie Floral Design Workshop
In the spirit of lavender, the herb, and the Lavender Festival, join Lisa Weddel and learn to make a traditional Victorian Tussie-Mussie. Originally carried by women in the 19th century, these fragrant bouquets were designed to appeal to the senses. After discussing the history of Tussie-Mussies, design your own modern take on this traditional accessory. To compliment the lavender, we also plan to blend in other herbs such as rosemary, eucalyptus, statice, and Limonium to make these tiny fragrant bouquets.
*This class takes place at Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms located at C-470 & Wadsworth*
This class takes place during Lavender Festival. Registration for this program covers the cost of festival admission.
