Sympathy Today! Celebration of Life… That’s What It’s All About! / A Hands – On Class

Instructed by: John Hosek, AIFD, CF, PFCI
Where: Rojahn & Malaney Co. 1005 N Edison St, Milwaukee, WI 53202
Class Date & Time: Sunday, July 23, 2017 -­‐ 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Class Topic: Come Join John Hosek AIFD, CF, PFCI to experience the new trends in sympathy. Sympathy flowers and memorial tributes, like the rest of our industry, have changed drastically over the past few years. It’s no longer a funeral it is a Celebration of Life! Today’s sympathy is the “Who, What, and Where”… personalizing the design to celebrate what that person was all about. The demand is to have things more stylized… unique… soothing… and to provide the family with a take home afterwards. Your designs should want to make your community come to you for the next Celebration of Life.

Attendees will make 3 pieces, a family piece, a set piece and a family keepsake design.

Required Tools: Design Knife, Bunch Cutter, Wire Cutter, Scissors, and Needle Nosed Pliers.
