Description: What better way to express you love for nature and the garden than to fashion a work of art from pressed leaves and flowers?
Pressed plant material will be provided, but you are encouraged to press your own as well. Placing small, non-fleshy leaves and flowers between the pages of old dictionaries or encyclopedias two or three weeks in advance of class, will provide you a pallet of colors, shapes and textures from which you can make a unique greeting card to frame or give as a gift.

Those who claim a lack of artistic talent are generally pleased with the result of their leafy endeavors.
