Since ancient times the olive branch has been recognized as a symbol of peace and goodwill, but it’s also a wonderful opportunity to welcome a new season. Students will customize their olive branch wreath to fit their own unique design aesthetic, incorporating optional Fall add-ins and ribbon. Olive branches are harvested right here in Tucson, grown without herbicides or pesticides to be woven into a thick, lush ring that dries beautifully over time and enjoyed through the Fall season.

Guests may bring wine, cocktails, etc. to enjoy in class.
