Flower Pressing Workshop


Date: Sunday, May 24 and Sunday May 31

Time: 1:00 - 4:00

Admission: Free

Observatory will host a plant pressing workshop led by artist James Walsh on Sunday May 24 and Sunday May 31 from 1 to 4 PM.

The first Sunday we’ll look at some pressed and mounted plants as inspiration, and then we’ll talk about how to construct and use a simple plant press. After this, we’ll find some plants nearby, bring them back to Observatory, and press them. If you have some plants you’d like to press, bring them along. We’ll leave the plants at Observatory to dry, and when we return on Sunday May 31 we’ll demonstrate different techniques of mounting plants on paper, and then we’ll mount what we gathered the week before. All materials, including glues and papers, will be provided.

$20 materials fee.
