Gain a contemporary introduction to the art of Oshibana, a centuries-old tradition of making art with pressed plant materials. Discover Instructor Susan McChesney’s personal techniques of pressing, unpressing, storing, collaging and sealing plant material, with a focus on blooms from our area’s beautiful flower farms or from your own garden. Explore perspective, value and composition while collaging your own artwork. With your first floral creation with Susan, you might well decide to deepen your own practice of Oshibana, preserving and creating floral art! All supplies are included in the registration.
