Pick & Play with Deb Jasinski

Planning a wedding or event –  or maybe you just love arranging flowers?  We have partnered with Deb Jasinski from Ochre and Bough on a new series of design events. This is a great opportunity to get some one-on-one time with an amazing local designer.   Deb is a thirty-year veteran of the floral industry.  She is the floral designer and creative director at Ochre & Bough, as well as a freelance designer who specializes in weddings, events and large-scale onsite installations.

Deb’s design style has gotten her works published in magazines like Wedding Bells, Style Me Pretty and others!  She encourages her students to ‘be’ outdoors, to ‘observe’ our natural surroundings on a more intimate level.  So that is what these Pick & Play workshops will do!  Each afternoon begins with a guided walk through our fields.  You follow your senses and pick whatever catches your fancy.  Then we re-group in our studio (with some flower-inspired mocktails and refreshments).  Deb will help you find your unique flower style,  and coach you through a custom arrangement that you take home.   Registration for each Pick & Play is $60.  Price includes all design materials,  flowers and refreshments.
