Naomi Bloss - Succulent Wreaths

Yes, Naomi Bloss is back by popular demand to present her workshop on making wreaths and other hangings. We have enjoyed her programs in the past and hope our many new members will take this opportunity to learn from an expert.

This is a hands-on program with equipment, cuttings, etc. supplied at a nominal cost of $15.00 per participant. (Finished wreaths start at $35.00 at the UCSC Arboretum's gift shop.) Bring extra cuttings of your own to personalize your work of art.

If you are not ready to construct a wreath, come see a master at work.

Also, the Blosses will be bringing many of their outstanding plants for sale.
