Many people now use artificial flowers to decorate their homes and offices--but did you know that we've been making "fake" flowers for centuries?  In the 18th century artificial flowers were typically made from paper or cloth, and could be used to decorate their homes, clothes and even hats (in the attached image you can see a preserved 18th century paper flower!)  In this class we will make two different varieties of flowers from easily-found types of paper, and there will be other patterns available for participants to experiment with as well.

This workshop will be held at the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation--please use GPS address 3900 North Sandy Flash Drive, Newtown Square, PA 19073.  Light refreshments will be available but we recommend eating lunch before arriving. This workshop will be held rain or shine; tickets are non-refundable, and class is limited to 12 participants. Ages 12 and up please.  In the event of dangerous weather this workshop may be moved to the Ridley Creek State Park mansion/office nearby.
