Beautiful, long-lasting succulent centerpieces provide style and color with minimal care. They’re inexpensive and easy to make from cuttings—and as they grow, they can be divided to create additional arrangements for your office, home, or patio. They also make great gifts that keep on giving!  The variety of shapes, colors and textures makes for unusual and interesting arrangements, and require minimal water. Class starts with an informational lecture, and then in the hands-on portion, you’ll design a living arrangement to take home and enjoy. Your instructor will provide potting soil and the succulents, you just bring the container 10" x 10" or smaller, preferably with drainage holes (ceramic pot, teacup, unusual bowls, be creative!). $5 material fee due at registration.
