Contact course provider
About the Course
Have you ever received a bouquet of flowers and wished you could make them last a little longer? Come and create a beautiful plaque from a bunch of flowers or other plant material which captures all the detail and form of delicate petals and stems.
Colour can be added to highlight the plant forms and add depth to the piece. Learn about making impressions into clay and about using plaster to make a simple cast and take home a gorgeous finished plaster plaque to be hung on the wall. All materials are provided and no experience is needed to enjoy this workshop and come away with a beautiful and lasting piece.
