Flatten Your Flowers and Press Your Plants!


Virtual workshop

From 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.

Pressing plants to preserve their beauty and study goes back over 500 years.  Join Thanabotanist Cole Imperi as she shares her favorite preservation techniques. Participants will learn several plant pressing methods, tips on picking and harvesting, and recommendations for their uses and display. Cole will also discuss the role of pressed plants in Thanabotany, an interdisciplinary field at the intersection of plants, death, and people, and how plants can be used to honor losses.

Registration required.
