Here’s a series of fun hands-on workshops that took months of planning and preparation: “Pick Your Own Dried Bouquet Experience.”

The staff at Park Winters, a 10-acre private country estate in Yolo County, had to think way ahead before offering these dried-flower workshops: What to plant? When to pick? How to help people use these dehydrated beauties?

The results are gorgeous and available on three upcoming Saturdays: Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and Feb. 18. Visitors can participate between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. any of those days; advance registration ($45) is available at eventbrite.com or use this link: https://bit.ly/3JlD0bU

“We’ve been preserving our favorite spring and summer blooms to offer this unique artisanal experience that will bring your inner creative to life,” say the organizers. “Build your arrangement with colorful, preserved flowers and plants that have been collected and dried. Take your time arranging your selection to create the perfect piece to bring home.”

Get expert help, too.

“You’ll have guidance on how to arrange a gorgeous bouquet to decorate your home or gift to a friend,” say the hosts. “You can even use the dried florals to make your own creations at home including garlands, wreaths and more!”

Park Winters is located at 27850 County Road 26, Winters.
