2nd Annual Mounting Workshop

Come Hang with Us!

Last year’s workshop was an amazing success but this year we are going to take it up a notch or two! This is a work at your own pace workshop for all ages and skill levels to enjoy. Come and experience a fun way to learn about orchids, their natural epiphytic growing habits, and how to care for them from experienced growers.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to learn from two skilled orchidists, Tom Pickford and Judy Carney, who will walk you through the basics of mounting and share the tried and true tips and techniques they have acquired over the years. Both Tom and Judy will present different mounting styles – you choose the mounting style that interests you the most.

Experienced growers will be positioned at each table to guide you and help you create a beautifully mounted orchid that will give you many years of pleasure and enjoyment. All the necessary supplies and tools will be provided so you can create your own living masterpiece (or two). We are flying in a wonderful selection of species and hybrids from Exotic Orchids of Maui and have also sourced many other wonderful orchids for you to use as well. Plants will be available for purchase for $10.00 per plant.
