Class Information

Preserving flowers is a beautiful and intimate way to remember the people we love and the places we've been. We will spend the afternoon learning about the different methods of pressing flowers and how to make your own. I will also provide each student with one of my handmade presses to keep! We will start the day with a large variety of fresh flowers which we will take apart and press. Each flower is unique and some require different methods, so all this will be demonstrated and the student will learn how to place the blooms for optimum drying. We will also take a short nature walk to collect specimens for drying in addition to the flowers provided in the studio. Lastly, we will use pre-dried flowers to create our own art. The class will cover different methods for displaying and preserving dried flowers.
