Artist-in-Residence – Pressed Flowers: In the gardens with Michelle Pujol
This month will see Artist-in-Residence, Michelle Pujol, explore designing with pressed flowers and how to make a portable flower press.
Join Michelle as she explores floral form by breaking down the structure into shapes for pattern and design by using pressed flowers. Learn how to make a small portable flower press, easy tips and tricks and uses in design.
Michelle believes that by pressing flowers it alters the form enough that you can play with the basic shapes of flowers and leaves and combine forms and flowers to create new design. Adding a small flower press to your daily creative tool kit, will encourage observation and creative development across many design fields. This is a great way to encourage a daily creative practice whether you are a beginner or a practising artisan. These simple techniques teach observation skills and give you the confidence to start a daily / weekly creative habit and enjoy connecting to nature in your own way.
As a small part of this workshop may be held outdoors, please be sun smart and bring a fold-up chair if required. All materials are supplied. Participants are welcome to bring their own materials.
Location: Meet at the Administration Building.
