We have a treat for you – or, more precisely: for your kids. It involves smashing stuff.


“Flower pounding” or “floral hammering” is a straightforward approach to eco-art that even relatively young kids can master. And this is the perfect time of year to try it out; collect a selection of the abundance of flowers around, and let us show you some methods of preserving a snapshot of early summer colours on paper or fabric.


The pigments in the plants are vibrant and create stunning collages. In a little under an hour, the kids can create more than one seasonal gift, card, or piece of art to take home. And once they know how to do it, nothing will stop them from recreating the process at home with materials you already have.

It’s part craft, part stress management :)


Limited to 15 participants 8 years and older (Younger kids are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult).
