My 17 year old brother is staying with me for two weeks and I have a lot of activities for us to do. I am going to get him to do some printing with flowers/plants. I might get him to do this after a neighbourhood walk or I might get him to do it when flowers in our house start to look a bit droopy... I am unsure yet! I will likely get him to do this as a postcard to send home to the family! This could be a fun activity to do with students. Would also be interesting to develop further, with students learning about natural dyes, as well as thinking about how this is a way of preserving memory (for example, if you did this with a wedding bouquet).
The information my brother will receive:
Challenge: Use flowers and other plants to print
What: This is often called Flower Pounding Printing. Gather flowers and leaves and press them into fabric or paper. You can then add to the image, by painting, drawing or sewing
