Apples, Apples, Apples, with Betsy Williams

WHEN: Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 9:30AM - 12:30PM
WHERE: Carriage House

The apple, one of our most ancient and useful fruits, has played an important role in fall and winter celebrations for many centuries. Get crafty and embrace its many facets this fall season at this fun, apple-inspired workshop!

Participants will make and take home apple candles to decorate the seasonal table, a spicy apple pomander for gift giving, fragrant old-fashioned mast balls, ornaments made with apple-cinnamon dough, and a fresh Winter Apple Potpourri.

A $45.00 materials fee, which will be collected in class, covers all plant material, mechanics, and craft-making supplies. Checks payable to Betsy Williams. Please bring floral scissors and an apron to class. And wear old clothes—this will be a messy class!

This is an event the whole family will love. Bring your child, grandchild or friend and work on the projects together.


Apple cider and goodies will be served.

Members: $5
non-Members: $7

  • What to do with asparagus foliage (Sep 12, '14)
    I haven’t spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden this summer — Dan has been right on top of the planting, the weeds, and the harvests — but this week I found myself in there a couple of times. Gail, Betsy, the volunteers, and I had the pleasure of helping with a huge […]
