Making 'Fairy Houses' with Dried Natural Materials Adult/Child
Saturday, December 7, 8:30 - 11:30 am and 12:30 - 3:30 pm
The whimsical ‘fairy houses’ that accompany the Garden’s train displays during GardenFest are crafted by horticulturists, volunteers, and other Garden staff. Learn what goes into these unique creations and make one of your own to take home, under the guidance of horticulturist Shannon Smith and experienced staff and volunteers. In this session, adults and their accompanying children (children 5 years old and up; no more than two children per accompanying adult) create one house together. Some hot glue gun use will be required. We ask you to bring some materials from home; a base for your house and floral materials are provided.
GES: FD, 3 hrs. $61 / $50 for members.
Both adult/child sessions are full. Call (804) 262-9887 ext. 322 or 320 to be added to the waiting list.
