How?

  • Choose a sunny day (first thing in the morning when the dew has lifted as you don't want your botanicals to be wet).

  • Grab a basket, your favourite pair of scissors and head out to your special piece of nature.

  • Go ahead and snip the botanicals you wish to have pressed for your artwork. 

  • Remember to be mindful of how much you take. Will you disrupt the biodiversity of that ecosystem by picking the last flower? Pick what is in abundance and always give back to nature when you take. 

  • By practicing mindfulness, remember to harvest a bunch of botanicals that are artistically diverse and provide multiple of the same leaf/flower for cohesion in the artwork. See Pics below for structural examples.

  • Also remember to keep the stems long and bunch your botanicals into a bouquet so you can keep them hydrated during transit.

  • Follow the instructions on Posting the Bouquet Page to see how to deliver.
