Pressed Petals with Flora-Ly
A botanical afternoon with Linda of Flora-Ly on the farm. Linda is the creative director and spirit of Flora-Ly, a boutique studio that specializes in custom floral collages. Her thoughtful, carefully curated masterpieces are forever keepsakes throughout the world. We are honored to have Linda for the afternoon pressing flowers from our garden. Meet Linda!
PART I: Linda will spill the beans on flower pressing! Learn about what presses well, what does not - and why. Review the tools and materials required for successful pressing adventures. Then, using flowers cut from our fields, students will engage in the art of pressing flowers for themselves!
Break for locally sourced libations and snacks.
PART II: Putting it all together! Linda will demonstrate how to construct and design a floral picture. Learn the methods and which type of paper, glue, and board works best. Students will create an 8" x 10" piece of pressed floral art to take home.
*Optional: We will start by taking a tour of the farm to see how we go from seed to bloom 30 minutes prior to the start of class. Anyone interested in a tour is expected to arrive promptly before 12:30pm.
WHEN: May 18th, 2019 | Saturday
LOCATION: GPS, Chmura Road, Hadley, MA 01035 and it is the first barn on your left.
