Fun With Victorian-Era Flowers

Happiness-Projectlogo-smallWendy Batchelder from “Lost Arts” will present “Lily of the Valley Is for Happiness,” appearing in full Victorian costume to talk about the meaning of flowers. You don’t have to dress in period costume (though you could), but you will learn to make a simple tussie mussie (also called a “nosegay,” and either term is just plain fun to say, innit?) to give to someone who makes you happy. Pre-registration is required and class size is limited. For teens and adults.

    I have taken my daughter to a previous presentation of Wendy’s and it was so much fun. The historical information she has is the best. What a great idea to have them offered at the library!
