Adult & Family Programs
Hershey Gardens offers a variety of adult and family educational programs and classes throughout the seasons. Led by Gardens staff and local experts, programs and classes are designed for students of all levels.
Wine Glass Floral Arrangement
Thursday, June 27 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Explore the Gardens after-hours and make these fun and fanciful mini flower arrangements. This design features roses accented with an assortment of filler flowers, greens and glass vase-filler gems (colors and filler varieties may vary from the pictured arrangement). With proper selection and placement of just a few flowers, fillers and strategic accents, it’s amazing the big impact this little arrangement can have. Learn to gauge size relationships between individual flowers, accent materials and a wine glass “vase” to create a conversation piece to enhance your next dinner party or wine tasting get-together. BYOB.
Non-Members: $50, Members: $45. Advance registration is required here.
Butterfly Wing Jewelry
Sunday, July 28 from 1 to 2 p.m.
Vibrant colors. Natural forms. Brilliant butterflies. Each participant in this jewelry making class will create a stunning pendant necklace or keychain by choosing a portion of a butterfly wing from the colorful specimens provided. The pendant is made using a two-sided stainless steel memory locket, two butterfly wings (various species) and some jewelry adhesive—a very simple technique with stunning results. Complete your design with either a stainless steel chain for a necklace or a large split ring for a keychain. Enjoy the Butterfly Atrium and a walk through the Gardens during peak season before or after the class.
