Children's Flower Workshop

Last week, one of floral designers, Nixon Tran, had the pleasure of visiting the Cumberland Presbyterian Chinese Church in San Francisco to teach a room full of children how to make floral arrangements. We provided each of the kids with a few flowers and a basket, then proceeded to teach them the basics of floral design! Even Michael contributed to the workshop by cutting a few maple leaves from his home so the kids could add a little flare into their personal arrangements. Nixon said it was so rewarding to be able to teach a younger generation the beauty and uniqueness of floral design.

Here are a few photos from the flower workshop:

Once the workshop was over, the kids wrote in their class journals about how 
their day went with "Mr. Nixon".  
So sweet!

To thank Mr. Nixon for coming to the class and teaching the students, they in turn made him an origami flower arrangement. Now, we just might have to do our very own origami workshop here at Michael Daigian Design!

Thank you again Cumberland Church for allowing us to teach your students!
