Our presenter, Susan Siev, takes inspiration from the natural world of birds and plants-most especially flowers. Here’s an opportunity for you to learn about pressed flowers from her. What flowers are best for pressing? When is it best to collect them? What equipment is needed? What are some elements of design to consider? Susan will show you how to combine pressed flowers with paper crafts so you can keep some of summer all year long. You will make a bookmark to take home. And you will leave with ideas for additional projects. Some may become gifts to give away. The glory of this class is that Susan has already collected and pressed all the flowers. You don’t need to bring anything except tweezers.
Susan is a Master Gardener Intern and Iowa Arboretum volunteer.
