Designers Donaldo Radovich and Sebastian Delinger will walk you through the step-by-step creative process of constructing a one-of-a-kind preserved flower, shadow box. Under their guidance, each participant will then design their own floral layout in a shadow box to take home.
This lesson provides you with a 12”x15” shadow box frame (choice between black or white) and a wonderful assortment of preserved flowers and foliage, berries, twigs, seed pods and a host of other special little botanical treasures.
All tools and supplies are provided by Delinger & Radovich. The flowers are natural, and non-toxically preserved to last in their present state for 5-10 years.
Each class is $210 (includes workshop fee + tax, floral materials, shadowbox frame).
Class size is limited. To register, please call (206) 381-3000. Payment is required to secure your spot.

Bosatsu is a Japanese word for “Bodhisattva” originated as a Sanskrit word for a “being who aspires to Buddhahood.” Bosatsu carry out altruistic practices to achieve enlightenment and are compassionate beings who postpone their own entry into Nirvana in order to lead others toward enlightenment. The plump figures, which I call “Chubbies”, are the predominant icons in my art and my visual interpretation of the Bodhisattvas. These Bodhisattvas are struggling and suffering in order to advance to enlightenment while helping others to do the same, in the muddy pond of earthly desires.
