Make-a-Flower Press July

July 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Register Here

Come build a Flower Press at Gibbs Farm! Pressing flowers is an “old fashioned” craft that is coming back in style. This class is perfect for gardeners, nature lovers and those who like to use natural materials in crafts and projects. You can use you dried pressed flowers in an endless variety of crafts (last year we decorated beeswax candles, ornaments and cards)

We will walk you through the steps to measure, drill and assemble your press. Participants will have the chance to safely use power drills. Absolutely no experience necessary, staff will assist based on everyone’s skill and comfort level.

After assembling our press we will head out on to the 8-acre site and collect a variety of flowers and foliage to press. This is a chance to observe familiar flowers and recognize the beauty of things we often overlook! Last year’s surprise favorites were strawberry leaves, asparagus fronds, creeping charlie and individual hydrangea petals!

Finally, we will get creative and use Mod Podge to decorate the presses using material collected at Gibbs!

This program is geared for adults and kids 12+. Younger children are welcome to attend with an adult, but will need extra one-on-one help from their grown-up! We will have the materials to create one press per registration.
