Fresh Pressed Flower Cards (and more)

May 20 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

This is a hands on make-and-take class where you will make at least five items including a greeting card, a bookmark, a fridge magnet and an ornament. Learn two different techniques and get tips on using color, shape, and texture. Jan will explain how to press flowers and which flowers hold their color best. It is a creative experience! All materials are included in the class fee.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.

Financial aid is handled on an individual basis. If you think you qualify, follow the link below to apply.
