The Art of Flower Pressing

June 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn the beautiful art of flower pressing and preserve a piece of summer forever! Park horticulturist, Anna Davis, will teach the various methods of pressing during this workshop. The class will assemble their own press so they can and continue what they have learned at home. Once presses are assembled, we will proceed to our 18th century kitchen garden to collect two to three flowers to use in your new press. 

The last hour of the workshop we will discuss various ways to use pressed flowers creatively at home. Then, using pre-pressed flowers and some beautiful vintage paper samples, we will create and design two botanical bookmarks to adorn your latest novel. 

There are a maximum of 12 spots available. The cost is $80 per person. All proceeds from the Garden Days Program Series go back into the Historical Garden Program run by the non-profit Friends of Washington Crossing Park.
