Biodiversity & Botanical Art Workshops

Biodiversity & Botanical Art Workshops

We offer live workshops that cover a wide range of pressed flower ideas and applications, as well as concepts and techniques for sustainable harvesting, Irish wildflower identification as well as creating gorgeous, long lasting pressed flower art that you will be proud to display in your home or give as a gift. 

In-person workshops such as card-making and creating framed botanical art with pressed flowers will take you all the way from flower selection and preparation to learning how to use a flower press and gluing the flowers so they don’t mold or fall apart. These workshops are a great opportunity to learn from some of the leading botanical artists in the country and get an in-depth look at our process and technique while being inspired to create your own works of art.

Our workshops are open to any skill level, and provide step by step guidance through the flower pressing process, including what supplies you will need and what flowers to use, depending on the season.
