Miniature Paper Flower Kit Demo & Workshop

Cattelya-GlassThe Friends of the Conservatory are pleased to welcome master crafter and instructor Jeannie Lindquist to the Conservatory for two exclusive events.

Jeannie and her miniature flower kits are true-to-life representations of actual botanical specimens; painstakingly studied, deconstructed, digitally reassembled and laser cut out of paper. Proceeds from the sales of “Jeannie’s Jems” kits have benefitted the FOC for years.

Saturday, June 4, 2016 – 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM | Free Admission

Miniature Cattleya Orchid Paper Flower Workshop

Jeannie will lead a one-time-only workshop to showcase the beautiful orchids in miniature that are grown full-size in the Conservatory. These orchids were studied in great detail in order to make the miniature accurately.

– Students will learn how to assemble each orchid stem using special tips and then “plant” them in the pot.
– All orchid pieces are laser cut.
– No scissors are needed for this.
– Orchid column and lip petal are pre-assembled.
– Leaves, stem pieces and roots are hand colored by Jeannie.

Saturday, June 11, 2016 – 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM | $35 FOC Members/$45 Non-Member

About Jeanne Lundquist

StargazerHaving studied botany at the UW, I enjoy the challenge of designing and making all pieces to the flowers. I make botanically correct to represent the season, climate sensitivity, and to show proper perspective in miniature. This means small pieces in 1:12 scale.

I find it satisfying to discover differences by observing flowers at various stages of the growing season. Flower samples from our yard and generous friends’ yard are first photographed then later taken apart to document the shapes, sizes, and colors.

I wish that everyone observing my flowers know immediately what kind it is. To fulfill this goal, I am self-taught, do many trials, and am constantly learning.

Come see some of my hard earned tricks.
