A few weeks ago, I was able to attend my first floral workshop. I’ve been wanting to take a floral class for so long now and this opportunity came up and I just couldn’t resist! The workshop was hosted by the White Buffalo Project, a wonderful non profit movement that promotes and celebrates women coming together, sharing and inspiring conversation and ideas among each other.

Images from a teaching workshop I participated in yesterday at the Glassell School of Art along with Chau (from Rckshw).

The batik fabric dying workshop was really fun, also. I’m always kind of a dunce when it comes to layering on colors, especially in printing techniques like this one, […]
