BLK FLWR MRKT Smudge Stick Lab: Celebrating Womanhood

Join Kehmari for a special Smudge Stick Lab in honor of Women's History Month.


The BLK FLWR MRKT Smudge Stick Lab is unlike any other flower workshop you've experienced before. We're talking burning flowers, blindfolding and sensory games and writing affirmations - all while connecting with others and creating a dried arrangement that's not only functional, but lasts for the next few years to come. Excellent for team building exercises, date nights, and cultural celebrations, we have hosted nearly 5,000 Flower Buds in our Smudge Stick Labs, all of whom range in gender and cultural identity; our youngest participant was six years old, and our most seasoned at 86 years young. This month our Smudge Stick Lab will be focused around celebrating womanhood. Learn about the history of burning herbs and florals in order to create a Floral Smudge Stick.


Founded by DC-born florist and community organizer Kehmari Norman, BLK FLWR MRKT is a multifaceted floral design brand that bridges diverse cultures with floriculture. Using flowers as our medium and language, we tell stories that aim to authentically represent and empower our communities through intentional products and sensory-exploratory experiences.
