Preserving the Seasons: Pressed Flowers
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!

Please note Nov 3 is the marathon and any travel by car is difficult. Only aign up if you're sure you can get here!
