The Handcrafted Holidays Adult Workshop Series offers participants the opportunity to create one-of-a-kind flower arrangements, cards and books in the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright. Participants may take their creations with them.
 
The two-hour workshops will take place at 7 p.m. Thursdays, Oct. 23, Nov. 20, and Dec. 11 at Unity Temple, 875 Lake St., Oak Park, Ill. Admission, which includes a $10 materials fee, is $25 for non-members and $20 for Frank Lloyd Wright Trust members.
 
For the first workshop, Bringing Nature In, on Oct. 23, artist and designer Chris Geoghegan of Moss Modern Flowers in Forest Park will demonstrate the use of natural and found materials in designing arrangements for the home. Participants will learn design principles and create an original arrangement.
 
On Nov. 20, just in time for holiday card season, the Card Printing workshop will encompass a lesson in drawing and two-color printing to create cards or small art works. The workshop will be led by artist, photographer and designer Jim Nedza, founder of the Designslinger website.
