About the Workshop:

Join us to create your unique tote bag that can keep a piece of nature. Explore a special technique that can directly transfer plants onto textiles. Each participate will be provided with a tote bag that they can take home at the end of the workshop. This workshop will provide some plants but encourages participates to bring their own favored leaves and flowers to create their unique styles.
