On Friday, May 20, I will be leading an afternoon workshop from 12:30-2:30 at The Center, 12700 Southwest Hwy, Palos Hills, IL, where we will do projects like this, and many others. The special feature of this class is the invitation to bring fresh flowers from your garden or bouquet. We will press and dry them in my microfleur to use in our art projects. Beautiful results guaranteed.
