Pressed Floral: “Bouquet” in a Glass Frame
September 22, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm$40.00
Have you had a bouquet that is meaningful to you, or found a bloom or leaf that you love during a hike and are sad that the beauty will fade away? Join us in discussing some of the various ways people have pressed and preserved flowers through the ages, and learn a recently developed technique that enables you to press flowers and use them within the same day.
The workshop will include a flower pressing demonstration. Flowers for the workshop will be pressed in advance and be ready to use during the class. Sweetwater may have flower presses available for purchase after the event.
