In the afternoon join Stratford Hall’s Georgia Director and Garden Club of America judge, Kathy Hendricks, as she and Miller show and discuss creations for special events like weddings, holidays and large parties.

After lunch, the speakers will offer to a limited number of registrants a special opportunity to sharpen their skills in a two-hour hands-on workshop.  Participants need to bring two vases and clippers.  All flowers and materials will be provided.  Both beginner and advanced arrangers are welcomed.
