Topiary artist Pearl Fryar to conduct a workshop to benefit Philip Simons Foundation
Pearl Fryar, a nationally known topiary artist, will conduct a workshop Saturday in Charleston. The event, a benefit, is being sponsored by the Philip Simmons Foundation.
Fryar will demonstrate his art by designing a topiary with a plant in the Simmons Garden.
Fryar, a self-taught topiary artist, also will hold a question-and-answer session and one-on-one consultations with attendees who bring a plant they plan to design for personal use.
Fryar has been featured on television shows, including “Making it Grow,” “Victory Garden,” “Martha Stewart” and “B. Smith.”
Photographs of his topiary creations have been seen in many magazines.
The workshop will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Simmons Garden at St. John’s Reformed Episcopal Church, 91 Anson St.
