The author of “Fresh,” Sybil is coming to the Jane Harris Youth Building at the Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church on Wednesday, February 7, at 9:30 a.m. The Garden Club of Lookout Mountain invites you to hear this talented dynamo speak about her work, and her lecture is bound to be as educational as it is delightful. Sybil will also conduct a flower arranging workshop after the lecture, and all you need to bring to the workshop is a pair of clippers; fresh flowers, supplies and a delicious lunch is included. The lecture is free, but the cost of the workshop is $125 per person.
“Southern floral artist Sybil Sylvester does more than arrange flowers; she uses inventive ideas and fresh plants to illuminate her surroundings. Many of her plants come straight from her own garden, revealing a natural sense of connection that is evident throughout the pages of “Fresh.” This stunning book presents Sybil’s most effervescent and distinctive floral designs, organized by season, plus some of her celebrated arrangements from a variety of special occasions. Excitingly, “Fresh” also includes a beautifully photographed how-to section in which Sybil empowers readers to create their own magic from the natural world with instructions for a number of delightful designs, plus her own special brand of inspiration and helpful advice. Full of whimsy, joy, and elegance, “Fresh” is a magnificent paean to floral beauty,” touts her book description on Amazon. No worries if you don’t have a copy and want one – she’ll be signing books at the lecture.
Space in the floral workshop that is offered after the lecture is limited, so please contact Lee Easterly at (423) 280-9161 to reserve your spot.
