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.

This is what our world looks like right now… Beautiful, yes… But I think most of us are ready to move on. […]
  • Deep winter (Feb 06, '15)
    Last week’s blizzard seem to open the gate to a real winter complete with snow storm after snow storm, and hard-core cold. We’re being tested on our ability to stay upright on icy patches, and on keeping our cool when we can’t get where we’re going on time. But we’re also being reminded about what we love about […]
