Wichita — The Wichita Garden Show Educational Foundation and the Wichita Garden Show Amateur Flower Show Committee will sponsor three design workshops that will be applicable to entries in the Amateur Flower Show and the Suburban Small Standard Flower Show. The shows will be part of the Wichita Garden Show, which will be March 2 to March 6.

People who are interested in the workshops will be required to enroll in all three. If workshop participants enter and display in the Wichita Garden Show Amateur Flower Show Design Division, $25 of the workshop fee will be refunded. The cost of all three workshops is $75.

The first session will be Jan. 12 and will be on Back to the Basics of Design, demonstrations on mechanics, basic design, abstract arrangements and designs in frames. The second session will be Jan. 24, on how to make a fabulous arrangement for less than $25 worth of flowers. Participants will take home a flower arrangement they created. The final session will be Feb. 9, on minimalistic designs — how to use fewer flowers to creative greater beauty. Participants will take home a flower arrangement they created.

Sessions will be at 7 p.m. in new Wichita Garden Show office at 1024 West St., Suite 2. Reserve a spot by Jan. 6 by calling the office at 316-946-0883 or e-mail
