PRESSED FLOWER
FLOATING FRAME

In this creative workshop, cultivate appreciation for the history of the ancient pressed-flower art form with instructor Conner Parrish of Blossoming Roots Farm and Supply, a local farm in Ashland. After diving into the history of pressed flower art, we’ll create a stunning pressed flower glass floating frame using a 5×7 black glass-on-glass floating frame and real pressed flowers from the farm. The floating frame you design and take home with you will be totally unique, as no two frames are ever alike!

About the Instructor

Conner Parrish owns Blossoming Roots Farm and Supply in Ashland, Virginia. Blossoming Roots is a local cut flower farm with a mission to protect and nurture the environment around us! Conner has always been a nature lover and started down this path after the sudden loss of his father at an early age. He quickly realized nature is what grounded him and after becoming a beekeeper in college, he began to understand the therapeutic benefits it cultivated within him. Flower farming naturally entered the picture after he was planting them to feed his bees. Fast forward to today and he owns a cut flower farm that donates a portion of profit to pollinator conservation each month! He is finally living the dream and helping the world be a better place.
