Former Better Homes and Gardens food editor and Virginia blogger, Erin Simpson Lozier invites you to an afternoon of learning, creating and eating in a charming 200-year-old house. The theme for this Makery is FLOWERS. Spring’s finest florals will make their way into every part of this event from the crafts to the food.
Treat yourself to a brief respite from the busy-ness of life, and make something beautiful. The first workshop will be led by Fredericksburg florist, Jamie Butcher from Blushing Blooms Events. She will share how to combine fragrant flowers and lush greenery to create a lovely spring wreath that can be dried and enjoyed long after the season has passed. Next, will be the Handcrafted Happy Hour where we will sample flower infused cocktails and mocktails while learning to create a lovely floral embroidery piece with Richmond-based embroidery artist Amanda Neely of CrewelGhoul. The gathering will come to a close with Erin serving a lovely flower-infused dinner where we will enjoy the good food, the relaxing setting, and newfound friends.
$95 each or $175 for two. Price includes two hands-on workshops, plus a sit-down dinner—it is a full creative afternoon! (See full list of what’s included, below).
