Family Workshop: A Fairy House & Garden in a Basket
Thursday, APRIL 21, 10 a.m. - Noon (during April Vacation Week!)
Are there fairies at the bottom of your garden? Possibly, but even if there aren’t, it’s great fun to pretend! Build a house and little garden that just might entice the fairies to come and play. Using bark, leaves, twigs and other natural materials, we’ll create a charming little home that any fairy would be pleased to move into. Once the house is built the landscaping can begin: lay out paths, design a garden or install a small pond. The construction site is a basket that is easily carried home.
$35 per basket, Members; $45 per basket, Non-members
Be sure to bring an apron, garden scissors and your imagination to class.
