Do you have trophies in the attic? Put them to use as the perfect containers for flowers.

Bring your own vessel and create your own floral design to take home. Specializing in weddings and high-end events, Elizabeth draws from European training, an art and design background, and an aesthetic developed on the west coast to create lush and luxurious floral designs. She grew up in Houston, Texas, and has many fond memories of showing her American Saddlebreds across the country. She, too, has trophies in the attic.

Carnegie at the American Saddlebred Museum: Horsing Around Creative Writing Workshop with Randi Ewing
Saturday, April 20, 10:30 a.m.– 12:30 p.m. • $30
Register at carnegiecenterlex.org
In Kentucky, no animal is more central to the story than the horse. Whether they are the hero’s faithful steed or themselves the heroes, horses become characters in their own right, to serve as foils and mirrors for human characters, and to create unexpected and surprising pathways in our stories. In this class, inspiration will be taken from the American Saddlebred Museum and generative prompts will be used to explore how writing about horses can lead to new and interesting work. Randi Ewing’s short fiction has appeared in American Short Fiction, Little Star and Joyland. She has taught creative writing at Eastern Kentucky University and Washington University in St. Louis.
