Forcing bulbs to bloom is a long and intense process. This winter, create a crimson amaryllis’s stamen, petals, leaves, and bulb using crepe paper. The petals and leaves are built with wire, which makes it easier to exaggerate their shape. The flowers are created from one weight of crepe paper, but a class discussion describes the different types and weights of crepe paper available. Leave the Zoom meeting ready to complete two or three realistic amaryllis plants. 

The session is open to students of all skill levels, and no experience is required. All supplies provided in a kit to be ordered from the instructor (a supply fee of $20 is included in the workshop price). Supplies will be mailed to the address on file one week prior to the workshop’s date. If you need your supplies mailed to a different address, please email us at
