Pinecone Tree Workshop (Sold Out)

WHEN: Saturday, November 30, 2013 at 10:00AM - 12:00PM
WHERE: Carriage House

Pinecones are beautiful gifts from nature—the unique crafts that can be made with them are virtually endless. In this workshop, we start with a sturdy paper cone and then apply a beautiful assortment of cones to it. And your lovely little tree can be preserved forever with a coat of protective gloss. Other options are to leave the tree natural, or add a little sparkle or a few mini-decorations. And maybe the flow of creative juices that emerge as you work could lead into other pinecone or holiday crafts. A great way to get your holiday spirit going! All supplies will be provided, however you may bring your own glue gun.

This class is great for adults and children 12 and up (we will be using hot glue guns). Tea, cocoa, and Christmas cookies will be served.

Pre-registration is required as spots are limited.
$30 Member, $35 Non-member
(If you are working with a child or grandchild on one tree, there is a $5 participation fee.)

  • Learn something new — on fertilization (Jan 23, '15)
    When we get busy I’m apt to forget my quest to learn something new every day. But during the winter we have the time and plenty of opportunities in the way of classes, lectures, symposiums, trade and garden shows to make a habit of it again. And it’s a treat whether I’m learning something totally […]
  • What to do when it’s January-ish (Jan 16, '15)
    So far, to me, this winter has not seemed as winter-ish as winter usually is. Of course, I’m knocking wood as I say that. Although I love the way a good layer of snow blankets the landscape (and insulates our plants), I’m grateful to not have to shovel or trudge over and through giant banks […]
