Bloom Magic Boxes
Welcome to Bloom Magic Boxes, your online digital workshop where you can play with flowers at home, and share and learn in an online community. Super fun, super SAFE, and super sustainable.
Bloom Magic Boxes was created to reach our local students, and now students across the USA, during this time of safe distancing. Choose your class(es) and your 100% recycled cardboard box will arrive, full of beautiful blooms and fragrance*. With your toolkit included in your first lesson, you will create along with Kirsten at a live class on Zoom.
Every class includes a new project, details and tips on flowers, a Remix Guide so you can try your own new combos after the lesson, and valuable links so you can learn more about designers, flowers, and the American flower growing movement. Share your masterpieces and keep in touch until next time on our closed Facebook group.
Register for a Thursday night or Saturday morning lesson!
