Join Hilde Makkink, co-owner and head of the gardens at Makkink's Flower Farm, for a tour of the beautiful flowers growing on the property.  She'll show you how to cut different flowers so they'll last longer, teach you a bit about their growth and give you a wonderful appreciation for the flowers on site. Next, you'll select a vintage can or vase to showcase your beautiful blooms and head out into the field with some clippers and a bucket to begin cutting! Wander row after row of beautiful flowers, smelling each one along the way if you wish. 

Next, Hilde will bring you into her barn workspace to create a beautiful arrangement. You'll learn techniques on how to create the shape you want, focal flowers, fillers and even trimming your stems. You're sure to walk away with an arrangement you'll love.
