Oshibana

 

Oshibana is the art of working with Pressed Botanicals. About 30 years ago I dicovered the joy of pressing a flower, leaf or stem and preserving it to be used in various ways to either create a picture that can be framed or decorate products. The pure pleasure of opening a press and finding a flower that is beautifully preserved  and ready to be used in art is amazing.

 

I discovered The World Wide Pressed Flower Guild  in 2012 and it has been a wonderful journey with friends that have the same passion and classes , presented by excellent Oshibana teachers. What a joy to be part of a Guild with members from many different countries.
