ELLSWORTH — On Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 9:30 a.m., the Downeast Designers Guild will be hosting Yvonne Capella, a nationally accredited flower show judge, for a flower arranging demonstration in the Ellsworth City Hall auditorium.
Capella is a member of the Massachusetts Council of Flower Show Judges and a multi-award winning designer.
Her focus on Sept. 11 will be one of the most challenging types of floral designs — the duo design. This type of creative design features two distinctly different designs back to back in one container, which is meant to be viewed from both sides.
In addition to the demonstration, participants in the Downeast Designers Guild will mount a mini-flower show featuring designs on a harvest theme including fruits and/or vegetables.
The public is welcome to attend this program free of charge as well as bring a design or flower specimen for the mini-flower show, but space is limited.
Contact Mary Blackstone at 667-8878 for more information, to enter the flower show and/or reserve a place for the demonstration.
