Private and Corporate Events

Vancuterie facilitates private and corporate events. Pressed-flowers origins are traced back to the art form known as Oshibana in Japan. Folklore legends states that the Samurai warriors utilized the flowers to practice patience, concentration, and helped to harmonize themselves with nature. Using a non-traditional
approach to team building, flower pressing is an outstanding activity to help your team evolve and transform in a strengthened team culture.
