A term of endearment in some cultures, the cabbage is a beloved feature in the winter garden. In this class, you’ll create a unique gift box cleverly disguised as a luscious green- or purple-tinted cabbage. Using florist crepe in your chosen shade, you will learn paper preparation and coloring techniques to create the subtle tints and nuances seen in this humble, yet charming vegetable. Recreate the wonderful examples seen in Victorian prints and vintage gardening advertisements. This realistic cabbage box is a truly unique means of sending a token to one’s darling “choux,” or as a wonderfully whimsical hostess gift or element in a holiday tablescape.
