Dried Bouquets with Bay Made Oakland

  • Bay Made 3295 Lakeshore Avenue Oakland, CA, 94610 United States (map)

One of my favorite things to do is find sustainable and creative uses for the flora my studio. I started making dried bouquets from the leftover blooms from my large events over the season, in an effort to ‘waste not/want not’. At the end of January, I’ll be hosting a small dried bouquet making class where we’ll making large dried bouquets, both out of dried elements, as well as fresh. We’ll go over how to properly store and care for your bouquet during the drying process, as well as transporting it, or shipping it if you want to send your bouquet as a gift!

Similar to how we do in our wreath classes, we will provide materials including greens, flowers, ribbons, and tissue, but we strongly encourage you to bring any ingredients you’ve been dying to experiment with! Some of our favorites include airplants, feathers, animal bones, skulls, gemstones, and more! We’ll have a few pairs of clippers/floral knives as well, but if you have a favorite pair, bring them along!

You can purchase tickets in-store, as well as their website - Bay Made is located on Lakeshore Ave, down the street from Arizmendi <3

Can't wait to celebrate with you, see you soon!
