On Earth Day I hung out at the Makers Workspace Open Studios event for fun creative times. The space was set up with free activities and some of the artists and makers in residence had their doors open for visitors to browse and shop.
Kyla of Impressed by Nature had a flower pressing workshop. We used her travel size flower presses and she shared all the basics of flower pressing. We pressed jacaranda, daisies, hydrangeas, and bougainvilleas. I can’t wait to open up my press in a month to see the end result!
Christie and Veena of Floretta Designs hosted a flower crown making station and had bouquets for sale. It was all kinds of lovely. Plus, they had a backdrop for a post-flower crown making flower crown photoshoot (of course!). My kind of booth! It is safe to assume I wore my crown around for the rest of the day (and then I hung it on my front door afterwards!).
Katie of Wandering Falcon held a nature drawing session, too. She had an amazing collection of nature specimens for us to observe and draw, and lots of drawing utensils including watercolor pencils! I tried my hand at drawing zoomed-in sections of different specimens; it was fun to work with the magnifying glass to see all the detail. Nature is so impressive!
Yay Earth Day! How did you celebrate? Share below!
