Family Day Workshop
We all have a place of comfort, whether real or imagined. Join us to creatively reflect upon this theme through writing, drawing and finally creating a miniature world! We will transform ideas into a world created in a vessel using foraged, found, and upcycled materials. We will make landscapes, structures, figures, and creatures with materials like bark, twigs, seeds, dried flowers, and more!
A variety of foraged and found materials will be provided as well as basic vessels for the miniature worlds, but you are welcome to bring anything you would like to incorporate such as interesting seeds, twigs, bark, rocks, shells as well as a vessel such as a teacup, mug, glass jar, etc.
