The Art of Pressed Flowers

October 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Most everyone can remember their grandmother pressing flowers in a phone book.  Or maybe you have even tried pressing your own flowers between the pages of a heavy book with romantic thoughts of preserving the memories of that special moment.

The art of flower pressing has been around since early human civilization. Pressed laurels and garlands were even found in the 3,000-year-old coffin of Tutenkhamun’s mother in Egypt! However, the official art of pressing flowers to form decorative images originated in the 1500s and is called Oshibana. Various techniques of pressed flower art have developed over the years.  The method being taught in this class is called “Reverse Composition” and is taught by local pressed flower artist Debbie Cooney.
