- This event has passed.
This workshop is suitable for all abilities and will enable you to create a beautiful keepsake with ease.
The botanical art tiles are made by pressing plants, flowers & objects into clay. They are then removed & plaster is poured over to create the cast. The process picks up an incredible amount of detail to create a beautiful raised impression.
In this workshop we will create two works of art – both the clay imprint and the plaster cast, in a shape and size of your choice. A lovely memory of summer flowers, or perhaps more sentimental flowers – a dried wedding bouquet or a relatives favourite flower could be pressed to create a treasured keepsake. The Botanical Impressions and casts make ideal gifts for garden and nature lovers too.
The artist will demonstrate how to roll out your clay, imprint your foliage and create a frame to pour in the plaster of Paris. This will then set over lunch.
After lunch we will delicately paint the plaster cast using acrylic paints and a drybrushing and rubbing technique shown. We can then add a D ring hook to the back of each art piece so they can be hung on the wall or they can be placed on a stand to display

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Feel free to get in touch with the Make CIC office at 0151 601 8665 or email email@example.com
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let the organiser know if you need to do this.
Alternatively tickets can be transferred to a future event up to 7 days before the event.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, a register will be taken at the workshop, it isn’t necessary to print your ticket.
What is the refund/cancellation policy?
Refunds will be offered in the event of the class being cancelled – in this instance we will give as much notice as possible, usually at least 5 days, and offer alternative dates if appropriate.
This class does have a minimum requirement of ticket sales to proceed, so there is a possibility of it being cancelled, but we will contact you five days before if this is the case.
If for any reason you find you are unable to attend then please get in touch and a refund can be offered up to 7 days before the workshop.
This is because we pay our practitioners fair wages for their work- giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.
*Refunds will be given minus Eventbrite fees, unless Make CIC cancel the class, in which case a full refund will be given*
The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?
Please bring along a print out of your ticket if the registration does not match the attendee, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have them change the ticket so it contains your name.
What can I bring into the event?
You don’t need to bring anything but yourself. All materials are provided.
We also have an onsite café serving tea, coffee and delicious cakes!
