    Plants are amazing; they have the power to boost our wellbeing and support our everyday lives. Flower-pressing, and blending your own essential oil blends, are two soothing ways you can work with nature to capture your own little moments of magic for your home.

    From our beautiful Dorset studio, flower pressing artist Beth from Wilder and Wren will share her wisdom on all things flora & fauna as she teaches you how to preserve plants & press flowers into your own Old Green candle jar. Old Green’s Tori will then spill her secrets on how to create gorgeous natural candles. You will craft your own blend of essential oils, ensuring the pressed flower candle you’re taking home with you has your own personal scent.

    If this isn’t tickling your fancy yet, you will also have a go at pressing a range of wild and garden flowers in your very own press, creating some beautiful petal artwork too!
