The workshops will be held on Sunday, Dec. 4th and Sunday, Dec. 11th from 11am-2pm.  No previous experience is needed.  The workshop will take place at The Plant Provocateur Shop on the patio.  Please note this is a hands-on workshop, if you have garden shears and/or gloves, feel free to bring them.  Additional materials will be provided.  Again, each session is limited to 4 people.  Reservation purchase is required to attend.  Tickets are available through the 'SHOP' menu of this website or via the following link: WORKSHOP RESERVATIONS.  The Plant Provocateur is located at 3318 W.
