Sale price Price $44.00 Regular price Unit price  per 

This workshop is for the kids!

Alongside Christina from Five & Seven Florals (based in Elora) on Saturday, August 24th at 9:30am, we'll journey through nature together and learn how to press flowers.

We'll investigate the flower field and surrounding meadows to find, select and press flowers while appreciating and discovering different shapes and textures.  The skills learned in this kid-friendly workshop will allow your little flower farmer to be back to explore their own backyard for the perfect flowers and foliage to press.  It's all about getting excited to find and press their favourite flowers.

Each kid participant will receive a flower press to take home to continue their flower pressing adventure.
