Creativity Circle: Succulent Mosaic Workshop
Join us for our first ever Succulent Mosaic Workshop, hosted by Rachel Nisch of our local Graye’s Greenhouse!
In this workshop, Rachel will walk us through the steps in creating our own succulent mosaic masterpiece! You’ll pick baby succulents from a variety of styles, colors and sizes, and blend them together in one terra-cotta pot. The end result is a unique patchwork mosaic of succulents, that will add organic beauty to any sunny room or office!
Some fun facts about succulents:
“Succulent” is a loose term with no single definition. It refers to any plant with fleshy parts—leaves, stems, or roots—that store moisture to tolerate drought.
Succulents aren’t just green. They come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Some are fuzzy, some have spikes, and some produce the most beautiful flowers you’ve ever seen. Each species is unique.
They are very low maintenance and generally easy to care for creatures – all succulents need is a decent amount of sunlight and a little bit of heat. Water them once a week, and let them do their thing.
You can regrow new succulents from clippings of other succulents! Put your cut piece in sunlight until it sprouts roots, then place it in soil, and an entirely new succulent will grow.
Please register in advance as seats are limited. Light refreshments will be provided.
This event is discounted to Pastel members and $65 for non-members. Please note: Pastel Circles are either free or discounted for Pastel members. Learn how you can become a member to work, meet and learn with like-minded women in our beautiful shared workspace!
Pastel’s Circle Series is a monthly meet-up, geared toward helping you connect with your community, and features workshops in the areas of entrepreneurship, creativity, wellness, and social networking.
Rachel Nisch is the owner and operator of Graye’s Greenhouse, a local greenhouse here in Plymouth. Rachel fell in love with Graye’s Greenhouse early, when her dad took her there on weekends to pick up plants, or from her perspective, to chase the cat and torture the Venus fly traps. She never considered such a dreamy place could be her home and career, pursuing a degree in education instead in an attempt at practicality (without sacrificing purpose or passion). Teaching math and history led her to the high desert of Arizona, where she discovered and fell completely in love with work on a small organic produce farm. Thus, she was ruined for any kind of “normal job”. Family and fresh water lured her back to Michigan, where she worked making sauerkraut and planting community gardens for a nonprofit before approaching the Grayes about joining the greenhouse family. At last, in January of this year, Rachel took ownership of Graye’s Greenhouse and now calls it home. She is excited to collaborate with the community to explore areas of growth for the greenhouse, while preserving what has made it so special for so long.
