Workshop: Introduction to Flower Pressing

January 27 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Learn the art of flower pressing, using cuttings and blooms from the Sherman garden. Kyle Cheesborough, Sherman Horticulture Director, will introduce you to the meticulous techniques required to press and preserve plants in order to display the intricacies of the plant and its flowers, leaves, and stems.

For centuries, botanists have been observing, collecting, and preserving plant specimens for record-keeping and continued research of the species that inhabit our planet. As floral language became more prominent in the Victorian Era, gardeners began pressing their own floral findings to place in decorative frames and shadow boxes – even creating entire dried arrangements from pressed plants!

This class will give you all the tools, techniques and materials you need to start flower pressing at home.
