The Lavender Fuseaux Workshop


Join us on July 13th from 2pm-4pm for a Lavender extravaganza! 

Learn how to make a fragrant and elegant work of art from stems of fresh lavender, and learn a little lavender lore in the process.

A “fuseaux” is a traditional Provencal craft where fresh lavender flowers are encased in a cage of their own stems and colorful ribbon woven over and under the “bars” of the cage. Create a unique  work of scent-filled art that will last for decades.

To finish off your magical session we’ll teach you how to fold a little origami sachet and strip and sift lavender buds to fill your envelope of pocket sized serenity.

Suitable for ages 12 and up.

All lavender is sourced from Earth Matter’s NYC Lavender Field on Governor’s Island. Designs are designed fresh and you will dry them at home to keep forever!
