WORKSHOP :: FLORAL EPHEMERA //\\ SCULPTURE & STILL LIFE IMAGERY WITH OKIMOTO

2pm-4pm - All ages (we will be using sharp scissors)

7pm-9pm - Ages 16 and up

Space limited / RSVP for flower market purposes!

Sliding scale $60-$100 for one medium to large arrangement (cost includes flowers and vase to take home with you!). Create your arrangement on your own or bring a partner and collaborate!

Join Michelle Ishikawa of Okimoto in creating ephemeral floral sculptures to be photographed and taken home! In this time you will learn the varied creative elements that go into the making of a beautiful floral arrangement. Participants discuss the role of floral arrangements in pop culture and history as they create a piece of floral sculpture built to standalone as it evolves and eventually dies in your home. Participants then learn the art of memorializing floral sculpture by creating a still life of their work in a pop-up photo studio. Come join us and bring home a botanical sculpture for yourself or a loved one. A variety of flora will be provided as well as tools, various props from Okimoto's collection, inspiration, and vintage one-of-a-kind vessels. 

Okimoto is a collaborative, often botanical, creative studio based between Upstate NY and NYC.
