Reid’s Palace Hotel is hosting a Botanical Bliss workshop on the 6th and 7th of May (Saturday and Sunday).
The free workshops are hosted by Madeiran artists, where you can learn different flower pressing and preservation techniques, eco-printing, and vegan candle making.
A unique souvenir will be created together by the participants during these experiences, immortalising the essence of the island with botanical works of art.
The programme begins with a botanical art workshop, which takes place in the hotel gardens. The founder of Tristoas, Mónica Souto, will explain how to create a floral artistic composition and the pressing process.
This is followed by the candle-making course, where the candles will be infused with the aromas of the hotel’s aromatic garden. Here, the founders of PRANA, Joana Carvalho and Ismael Figueira, use vegetable wax, which is free from paraffin, lead, and phthalates.
The weekend ends with the eco-printing workshop – a natural dyeing technique that transfers colour directly from a flower or plant to a piece of fabric, inspired by Reid’s enchanted gardens in mid-spring.
