Join us for an evening of flower pressing with Melissa Richardson and Amy Ireland from JamJar Edit.

With JamJar's guidance you will choose a variety of flowers to press in your own personalised flower press which is yours to keep at the end of the workshop. You will also work with JamJar's pre-pressed flowers. You will be guided through techniques for mounting and framing your pressed flowers, or you can choose to make collaged artworks for gift cards or your mobile phone case for example. All flowers, materials and botanical inspired drinks included.
