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.

    Winter’s mess has me craving tidiness (I understand the whole spring cleaning thing now and have gone a little nuts clearing surfaces at home) and its palette of whites, greys, browns, and bronzy greens has made my eyeballs hungry for super-saturated rainbow colors. You too? I had both wishes fulfilled during one dark, rainy day yesterday. Betsy and I […]
  • The littlest things (Mar 20, '15)
    Pretty soon only the biggest bonanzas of blooms and armfuls of harvests will knock our socks off but right now, on the first official day of spring, it doesn’t take much to get us excited. Any evidence of the growing season, no matter how small, is huge. Especially considering there’s snow in our forecast today (ugh-gain), piles of old stuff jammed in […]
