It’s no secret that we’re total suckers for pretty things. Oh, it’s DIY, you say? Color us interested. That’s why when we heard about the new ZIMMERMAN Inspiration Series, we perked up.

ZIMMERMAN, the floral/event/design team based in Conway, has brought together some pretty awesome names for monthly workshops where anyone can learn skills from photography to abstract painting. It's like the ultimate IRL wedding Pinterest board.

More are being added to the lineup regularly, so make sure you check back for more information and updates. Classes are intimate and seating is limited. Here’s who made the list so far!
