Kate Estwing / City House Country Mouse

I love bringing floral and garden design to people in a hands-on way with our classes. I do not teach people to make a copy of a specific design, rather really enjoy showing participants different options and techniques to make something special. One of my favorite things about teaching workshops is seeing how individual personalities show up in each piece created, and some of the most beautiful work ends up being from people who swear they are not creative! If you don't see a workshop here that you wish we would offer - or would like a private or semi-private workshop, just let us know here or via our website.

    CHCM is a STL gem. Kate is AWESOME! I attended a wreath workshop with my mom on a Thursday and then signed up for a centerpiece workshop that following Saturday. Both were really fun! The wreath workshop was at the CHCM studio which is small and intimate. The centerpiece workshop was at Fresh & Co in the Grove which was also really pleasant. Kate is patient and kind and will help your vision come to life! At both events, I not only learned to be creative outside of my comfort zone (always fun) but I learned about sustainability and the importance of using locally sourced plants. I will be supporting this local entrepreneur in the future and encourage others to do the same!

    The class was very enjoyable, and the instructor is clearly an expert - she makes beautiful wreaths in minutes, but can also help people with their own wreaths! She brought a great selection of seasonal vegetation with which to make the wreaths. After the initial demonstration, there was lots of time to work and chat, making this a great class to do with friends.

    Really nice teacher. She emphasized exercising your creativity vs. her way. Really encouraged making the wreath “ours” and something to be proud of.

    Loved the wine being available. Loved that she took our pictures for us. Really appreciate how often she circled around to offer assistance or advice.

    My wreath is fantastic and I had a great time.

    What a fun class to take during the holidays! Thanks to City House Country Mouse for providing such a beautiful array of festive foliage for our wreath making! It was great to see everyone's creativity come to life, I will definitely be taking another wreath making class in the Spring!

    My friends and I took the wreath making class at the Sheldon, and it was a very fun girls night out. The teacher brought a variety of festive materials so that there was more than enough for each wreath, and she was very encouraging and positive, even for those of us who are not naturally artistic! They also provided a free drink each.

    A terrific class all around. Kate provides a solid foundation while encouraging independence to find your own style. She brought a wonderful variety of flowers and plants to choose from. I love the end product and would definitely take the class again.

    The class was really fun, and we each made a large wreath! She showed us how to add live succulents and both dried and fresh greenery to a basic grapevine form. I have some wreath-making experience from before, but it was definitely worth it to take the class!

    My sister and I attended this class with our mom for an early Mother's Day present. The instructor was really fun and helpful to work with, there were tons of supplies to chose from, the space was great, and we all were very proud of the wreaths we made.
