Making 'Fairy Houses' with Dried Natural Materials (Adult/Child)

Saturday, December 6, 2014, 8:30 - 11:30 am

Details:

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.  Come prepared for mess.  Hot glue guns will be in use.  We ask you to bring some materials from home; a 9" x 9" base for your 8" x 8" house and floral materials are provided.  Want more room to landscape? Upscale the landscape for your fairy house: upgrade to an 11" x 14" base for an additional $10.

Additional Fairy House Sessions are available on the following dates:

$67 / $55 member per adult/child pair.  $10 extra for 11" x 14" base.  1 session = 3 hrs.  GES: FD, 3, elective.
