Taught by Jen Messier

Jen is the co-founder of the Brainery and lives in Kensington with her parnter and (too many) cats. She knows a little bit about a lot of things and can teach a lot of classes on the fly. Currently really into embroidery, cyanotypes, and paper marbling. 

You can ask her anything at

Friday, July 19, 4:00-6:00pm in Park Slope, Tuesday, August 6, 6:30-8:30pm in Park Slope, or Tues, Aug 13, 6:30-8:30pm in Prospect Heights

Join us to explore some low-tech, fast (it doesn't involve a phone book!) ways to press fresh flowers in order to preserve them in dried form. After pressing a bunch of flowers, we'll use them to create a simple and lovely framed botanical print. 

All materials provided, but you're encouraged to bring any fresh flowers you have and would like to press!
