June 2-3 – 2023 Tenarky District Arrangements Workshop

The 2023 Tenarky District Arrangements Workshop will be held on June 2-3, 2023, at the Hampton Inn in Pleasant View, Tennessee.

We are excited to share that our guest instructor will be Gerry Mahoney, president of the Glendale (AZ) Rose Society and Arrangements Chair for the Pacific Northwest District of the American Rose Society.

Registration is $64 per person which includes workshop, supplies, and lunch. If you choose to do lunch on your own, workshop only registration is $50 per person.

We will supply roses, greenery, filler, and additional line and plant material. However, attendees are encouraged to bring things from their gardens as well, either for their own or others use. Attendees should also bring a traditional and modern type container if possible. If you cannot we will have extras. And if you have that gorgeous container that you just can’t figure out what to do with, bring that as well. We will focus on some of those!

Among the topics we will dive into are principals and elements of design, traditional and modern designs, including parallel and stretch modern designs, containers and mechanics. These will be hands on for attendees. We also plan to offer a container swap for those containers that you find you no longer use.
