I am so excited to host the first flower event of the Fall with Angie Watkins at The Big Tuna, her lovely waterfront restaurant in Georgetown, SC! Join us as we celebrate the start of autumn by the river!
As the days start to grow shorter and greens fade to oranges and reds, the change of seasons will inspire our arrangements of breathtaking beauty, accompanied by photo shoots that will capture the heart of our work.
We will start the day with a fabulous lunch from The Big Tuna and then head right into instruction on the art of floral design. An inspiring array of flowers will be available for you to build your own romantic, garden-style arrangement. You will learn about the mechanics, color combinations, texture and much more. After learning the tips and tricks to making an arrangement, you will create your own romantic-style centerpiece, inspired by the hues of autumn.
A photographer will be present to capture moments of the group, each participant, and each participant’s arrangement. If you come with sisters, cousins, your mom or your besties, we will be sure to get some group shots of you to last a lifetime! Digital photos will be available online approximately two weeks after the event.
South Gate Design workshops are designed for all levels and flower friends who want to learn new skills or hone in on their existing ones. All you need to bring is an open mind and a grand intention!
If you have been busy with life, this day-long workshop may just have your name on it. This getaway allows you to reconnect with nature, your soul, new and old flower friends, and your creative side. You will leave feeling rejuvenated after taking a break from your daily routine!
Everything is included except transportation to the event. The vessel and blooms will be yours forever; clippers will be provided. Feel free to bring an apron if you like. You will go home not only with a beautiful vessel with a gorgeous, lush arrangement but also with the confidence that you can do this again—either at home or in another beautiful venue!
Attendees' comments from previous South Gate Design floral workshops:
"...blessed to enjoy the great pleasure of a day or an afternoon in your lovely presence and that of a like-minded group. I think of you often as I am snipping an sticking and voila! I am transported."
" a class, offered by the talented Harriet Charles, but so much more than a class! Along with the instruction and a gazillion beautiful flowers to choose from, she provided a serene working environment with beautiful music, delectable eats and treats, and great company!"
"...beautifully executed from beginning to end,"
"...an excellent teacher..."
"...a day I will always remember....good for the soul."
*****Due to the perishable nature of flowers and the logistics of the event, I have a strict policy of no refunds for the workshop and no credits for future workshops. Flowers are booked well in advance of events, as are photographers, assistants, and caterers. If you are unable to attend, you may transfer your ticket for the September 25th workshop to someone else. If for any reason the workshop is canceled, you will receive a full refund. A minimum number of attendees is required to conduct the workshop. Spaces are limited. When you buy your ticket you are agreeing to the above refund policy and are also giving permission for all photos from the event to be used on social media.
