Green Beauty - Blending Fresh Flowers and Herbs
Where: Farmaesthetics Flagship Skincare Boutique
When: Tuesday, August 30th. 6pm-8pm
We value beauty for its own sake, yet many colorful flowers and herbs have much to offer in addition to their good looks. From gardens to centerpieces, to natural skincare, join two leading Newport based businesses as they share their inspiration about multi-purpose flowers and natural elements used as the source in their everyday work.
Floral designer and gardener, Kim Lamothe of greenlion design will demonstrate how to blend the fragrance of herbs with the color of flowers to create a garden style compote. You'll learn how to use floral frogs for stability while working with dahlias, late summer perennials, garden vines, echinacea, lavender, rosemary, and other assorted herbs. Much of the class materials will be sourced from local Rhode Island growers and nurseries as well as greenlion's own gardens.
