    • What is a L’écrin Flower?
      “L’écrin” means “jewel box” in French. L’écrin flowers are a botanical art in which flowers are dried and preserved in 3-dimensional frames. To preserve their natural beauty indefinitely, they’re preserved in the best airtight containers. Unlike pressed flowers or conventional dried flowers, l’écrin flowers maintain their most beautiful shape and color in their natural state. In this Nerima, Tokyo flower art class, you’ll get to take part in this cutting-edge floral art form!
    • Start Making your Flower Art! Setting the Flowers on a Heart-Shaped Base
      After some instructions, you’ll start making your l’écrin flower art! The process begins with using a pair of tweezers to move dried flowers onto a heart-shaped base. There are countless ways to go about this flower arrangement; will you use larger flowers for a simple look, or combine it with smaller flowers for vibrance and intricacy? Think about the natural characteristics of the individual flowers, their shapes and colors, as you paint the glass base into a vibrant jewel box!
    • Your L’écrin Flower Art is Complete!
      Once you’re satisfied with your flower arrangement, close the casing to complete your flower art. Your own hand-made l’écrin flower art is complete! The frame and casing add a 3-dimensionality to the piece, emphasizing the flowers’ beauty even more. The way the flowers bloom brilliantly beyond the casing is fitting its french namesake of “l’écrin” - “jewel box”! The l’écrin flower art that indefinitely preserves the natural beauty of flowers is a great interior piece, and wonderful gift!
