Featuring permanent stems of viburnum, blooming forsythia branches, and streptocarpus, and finished with cheerful ribbon, a butterfly pick, and a bird’s nest, this arrangement captures the sights of spring. Best of all, it requires no water and will last long through the season.

Increase the flow of creative expression, quiet the chatter of your mind, and revisit the fun you had painting as a kid in this fun workshop!
