    The Art of 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 at Guardswell Farm. 


    In the morning, guests will learn how to make their own wooden flower press to take home at the end of the class. Seasonal sweet and savoury treats will then be provided courtesy of Anna at Guardswell featuring herbs and blooms grown on the farm as part of a homemade lunch. 

    In the afternoon there will be a guided walk through the woods before reaching a wild flower meadow to choose a variety of blooms including ragged robin, cornflowers and white campions. 

    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. Guests will also label and frame a pre-pressed lichen or flower of their choice, which they will take home.

    All materials, including a wooden press, frame, flowers and notes to take away, plus lunch, snacks and tea and coffee are included in the £65 ticket cost. 


    As a wee treat- if you are buying this as a gift for Christmas- please let us know via email after the purchase, and we will handwrite a little note, with some pressed flower embellishment, for you to wrap and pop under the tree. Available until December 17th (for the last post).
