For many years, even before it was a fashion style, wearing a flower crown was a symbol of something festive, that a celebration was held among its community; they were worn by women and men alike and did not discriminate age. Different cultures and civilizations, such as the Greeks, Romans, Polynesians, and Aboriginals, used different flower crowns to start a festive time. This floral workshop and crowns will be the beginning of the celebration that the rebirth of La Mama represents for the local community. Everyone is welcome to create native flowers crowns to celebrate this rebirth party!

AUDIO DESCRIPTION: FLOWER CROWN WORKSHOP
Hello and welcome to our Flower crown workshop. For many years, even before it was a fashion style, wearing a flower crown was a symbol of something festive, that a celebration was held among its community, they were worn by women and men alike and did not discriminate age. With this in mind, we came up with the idea of a flower crown workshop, where you can personalize your flower crown and be part of the beginning of the celebration that the rebirth of La Mama represents for the local community.
For this workshop we have already prepared the base of the flower crown with some foliage, in this case, we use Emy grass and gum leaf. emu grass is dark green and pointy foliage that we use as a primary base, and then we rolled gum leaf over it, which has small triangular-shaped leaves to provide more texture. These two foliages line the circular base of the crown. Following the circle of the crown, there are small bunches of wax flowers, which are small in white and pink tones to give color to the crown and provide a new texture. To personalize the crown we have different flowers such as Everlasting, a flower that dries beautifully and preserves its colors, it is round, of different sizes and shades, some are open and you can see a yellow center and others remain closed and end in a point.
