About the Course

It can be difficult to feel connected to plants during Autumn and Winter. Scratch that itch by building your very own plant press. Your press will be more elegant than a phone book, reusable, and personalized by you.

We will meet at Making Tracks HQ in Millcreek; please note there are animals, plants, and a water feature on the premise. Some plants may be harvested for your press. All materials are included in the course cost.
