Learn how to turn fresh flowers and foliage into everlasting works of art!
In this hands-on class you’ll learn all about the process of flower pressing. This is a wonderful way to capture and preserve the inherent beauty of nature to decorate items such as jewelry, wall art, greeting cards, phone cases, and more! We’ll talk about the best plants to work with, how to prep them for the press, and demonstrate both quick and traditional methods of pressing.
You’ll then spend the remainder of the workshop arranging compositions of pre-pressed dried flowers and foliage on glass tiles, finishing them with a copper foil trim. These works of art can be used as a unique set of botanical drink coasters or add a small hanger to display on a wall or window.
Please bring in a heavy book to take home your freshly pressed flowers. All other supplies and equipment will be provided.
Unless otherwise noted, workshops are for those 16 years of age or over.

Melinda Prynne is a lifelong creative with extensive practice in painting and creating with the, “I can probably make that!” mindset. She grew up in a small town in Texas where she used her creativity as an outlet to get her through childhood and high school. Afterwards she did some travelling abroad, eventually landing in Portland where everything fell into place. She decided it was time to embrace her creativity by opening up her Etsy store, The Arty Narwhal, and beginning to search for jobs that would embrace her creative side. With a background in teaching combined with her fervent crafting, Assembly is her perfect niche! When Melinda isn’t working on DIY projects and painting, you can find her tending to her plant babies, drinking her weight in tea, and on walks or cuddling her rescue dog, Milk, and her sweet British husband.
