Back by popular demand is multi-media artist Debbie Smith Mezzetta, who will teach students to "spring" into May with delightful paper flower sculpting workshops—just in time for Mother's Day, summer nuptials, and other occasions!

In the "Spring Bouquet" workshop, participants will reinterpret nature utilizing luxurious European crepe and other fine papers; and transform these delicate papers into a lush display of realistic and whimsical flowers!

Participants will learn basic sculpting techniques to create a variety of spring blooms, buds and leaves to gather into a bouquet for the home or as a gift! These strikingly beautiful flowers are pollen-free, with blooms that will never wilt and don't require watering.

No experience necessary. Register in advance. If you have questions, please contact the instructor Debbie Smith Mezzetta at
