Saturday, March 19, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – An Introduction to the Victorian Art of Pressing Flowers

The art of pressing flowers may date back to earlier times, but it is still popular today! Placing flowers in books and flower presses provides the best way to preserve the natural beauty of every plant. Learn about this ancient art and participate in a “hands-on” flower-pressing session at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, 11 French Drive, Boylston, Massachusetts, on Saturday, March 19 from 10 – 12 noon. Prepare for the upcoming garden season! Create a garden journal to record and preserve your garden favorites to enjoy all year long. Journal pages will be provided and a pressed floral journal cover will be created in class. All materials are included. Pauline Bergassi of Petal ‘n Fern Impressions will lead the class, and the fee is $30 for THBG members, $35 for non-members. Register at
