The Mark Twain House & Museum, Workshop

February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST

Say It With Flowers: A Valentine Craft Workshop

People in the Victorian Era knew what greeting card companies these days have forgotten: emotions are complicated–especially love! Any candy heart or last-minute card can say “Be mine,” but using the Victorian language of flowers, you can send more complex sentiments like “Have confidence in me and hope in love,” “Let our friendship be the cure for your heart ache,” or even “I love you, my child, unconditionally–and with endless patience.”

In this workshop, you’ll learn about the Victorian language of flowers and then use it to craft three paper Valentines that send exactly the message you want–platonic, familial, or romantic!
Tickets: $25 per person. All materials provided, including the special envelopes and postage required to mail each Valentine! REGISTER HERE.
On Friday evening, hot and cold beverages, including wine and beer, will be available at our Nook cafe beginning at 5:30.
