Folklore exists across cultures and communities. It informs many aspects of our lives in ways that we may or may not be aware of. In this workshop we will explore and share folklore related to plants, flowers and the changing of seasons. We will reflect on our relationship with folklore, stories and seasonal rituals through creating cards with pressed flowers. You will learn techniques to press and store flowers, to create interesting compositions, and colour theory in relation to working with natural materials.
We will create two pressed flower cards as a healing springtime ritual. All materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring any flowers or foliage that you have pressed.
To ensure willing participants have access to educational opportunities, please email Ahmri at [email protected] if you face financial barriers and share why you are interested in joining the class. We can provide up to two complimentary spots in this workshop.
