    Flower Pressing with Gabriella Bennett

    Join Gabriella Bennett, author of The Art of Coorie, to learn more about the art of flower and lichen pressing at this nature-inspired workshop.

    Before lunch guests will learn how to make their own wooden flower press that they will take home at the end of the day. Seasonal sweet and savoury treats will then be provided courtesy of Anna at Guardswell featuring herbs and blooms grown on the farm.

     In the afternoon there will be a guided walk through woodland before reaching a wild flower meadow to choose a variety of blooms including wild poppies, cornflowers and white campion.

    The day will finish back at Guardswell with a demonstration by Gabriella on how best to preserve forest and field treasures before guests press theirs. There will also be the opportunity to label and frame a pre-pressed lichen or flower of your choice, which you will take home.

    All materials, including press, frame, flowers and notes to take away, plus lunch, are included.
