2016 Fairy Garden and House
April 23, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Did you know that every flower has a fairy looking after it?
Wouldn’t you like to delight the fairies in your garden into bringing each blossom to its brightest bloom? Now is the time to offer your garden fairies the perfect place to bask in the sunshine and a home to rest their wings under the twinkling starlight. Fairies love to create memories in their host’s gardens.
Join us in this new and fun, 2 day workshop to create the garden and home where your fairies would love to play.
In this fun workshop participants will take home a lovely, basket fairy garden and complete a beautiful fairy house designed to fit their personalized garden.
The workshop will be broken into two separate Saturdays: create a garden & build a fairy house to fit in this personal garden. Then return, the following Saturday, to decorate the house with whimsical colors.
Instructor, Robi Rew, will take you through the steps of creating your very own Fairy Garden and complete it by making your own Fairy house out of porcelain clay. Fairy gardens include a basket, 3 plantings and choice of 3 accessories, spray atomizer and pair of garden gloves. Each person is encouraged to express their personal design with materials provided. Following completion of the garden (take home that day) students will have a one hour break for lunch and return to create their Porcelain Clay Fairy House. A pattern will be provided to assist individuals in creating a whimsical house of slab porcelain. The following Saturday, you return to glaze your house with bright colors to reflect the whimsical delight of a true fairy house.
The 2 day workshop fee will be $132.00 and include all materials (container, plants, soils, accessories, stones, clay & instruction). Additional accessories will be available for purchase at discounted rates. Class is limited to 10 (ten) so please register early to save your spot.
