'From Art to Vase'

Seasonal Floral Design with Debra Prinzing  

Inflorescence: a group or cluster of flowers growing from a common stem in a characteristic arrangement.

Kirkland Arts Center’s fall show is curated by Susan Melrath and features six other local Washington artists’ work.

This multimedia exhibition stems from a shared floral theme, Inflorescence, and will run from September 19 to November 25, 2014.

Featured Exhibition Artists:

Debra Prinzing will be teaching a workshop 1-3 p.m., October 4, 2014, as part of this exhibit.

Students will take inspiration from the pieces featured in Inflorescence and use works of art as the starting point for their creative floral arrangements. This hands-on workshop will cover the basics of floral arranging, principles and elements of design, color theory and eco-friendly techniques.

Participants will select a specific work of art that informs their floral palette, structure & scale, proportion & form. A wide array of locally grown botanical elements — flowers, buds, berries, branches, grasses, twigs and vines — will be at your fingertips to work with.

Workshop Fee: $50 per student. Note: cancellations can not be refunded.

Workshop minimum: 6 students

Workshop maximum: 20 students

Workshop will be followed by a book-signing. Instructor’s requirements: $50 per student design fee to cover materials; each student to bring his/her own vase, cutting tools and gloves.
