    Crafty Fun Classes   

    Sprites for Spring: Garden Fairies
    Come release your inner fairy with Kyla Zaro-Moore! Celebrate the beginning of spring by crafting a garden fairy. Using scraps, wire, beads, and elements from the garden, we will create whimsical garden guardians to look after our plots (or entertain our houseplants) when we cannot. Adults and children will delight in this playful class. All ages, children accompanied by an adult. 

    Friday, March 4, 4-5 p.m.
    $10 Garden members, $15 non-members. Includes one fairy per person. Additonal fairies $5 each.

    Handmade Recycled Papermaking Workshop
    An intense papermaking class with self-taught papermaker Katy DeMent! You will learn about traditional papermaking while exploring more modern paper making techniques with color and texture. You will also learn about surface design, texture, and composition while creating sheets of recycled paper. We will form sheets of paper with a variety of fibers as well as the creation of “wet on wet collages” that can include mementos from home (family mementos, photos, plants, or other fibrous materials). Please bring a snack and drink.
