Class fee: $99
Create unique, whimsical garden art using a variety of materials found in nature – sticks, stones, and wood – and adding other materials such as paint and fabric scraps. Put your work in your garden, or any place outdoors, or even wear your artful fun.
Each student will receive access to a video created by the instructor with ideas and instructions to make four projects — a garden totem, a garden inspired T-shirt, a found stick mobile, and a fanciful garden stake — and a kit with all of the supplies you will need, plus prompts to search outdoors to find a few of your own. Students also will be given the instructor’s email address to contact her with questions, ideas, problems, or to request a FaceTime chat, if necessary.
On the last day of class, there will be a virtual show and tell. The instructor will organize a brief show of students’ garden totems solely for viewing by the residents of Christian Community Home in Hudson.
