Flower Pressing with Evanston Lands

05/11/2024 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm CDT

Build a flower press from reclaimed wood then learn to use it!

R ebuilding Exchange and Evanston Lands are partnering on a festive workshop featuring reuse and flowers. What could be better??

In this workshop you’ll start with building a flower press from reclaimed wood. Presses will be roughly 9″x12″ and capable of pressing several layers of flowers at once.

O nce your press is built you’ll learn to use it! We will chat about how to select, prepare and press flowers in traditional presses. Special attention will be paid to how to avoid browning and breakage. A few simple tricks really do work!

After learning how to press the fresh blooms, we will work with pre-pressed flowers and handmade papers to create cards and keepsakes for framing.

All materials, including a wide assortment of fresh and pre-pressed flowers, are included.
