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.

Essentially, they are pulling different natural features from throughout the Grounds, preserving […]
  • A rabbit’s eye view with Noel Kingsbury (Oct 17, '14)
    We are so lucky that yesterday’s rain held off just long enough to take a ground-level tour of Blithewold’s gardens with British garden designer/plantsman/author, Noel Kingsbury. He showed us, plant by plant, exactly what to look for to help predict how different plants will behave in our gardens. He reminded us that plant growth falls along […]
