About the Instructor: 

After retiring in 1998 from 35 years in Education, Martin Lalonde enjoyed gardening and became interested in the old Victorian art of pressed flowers. Since then, he has been making cards and other collages for family and friends. Now he gives card making workshops to adults interested in gardening, as well as elementary school students and seniors, art coops and social clubs.
