Early Spring Workshops

It's mid April and though the calendar may say it's spring, here in Wisconsin winter just keeps hanging on - the snow is hardly off the ground! But we're undaunted and so are our students...early "spring" workshops have been going strong. Starting with Garden Getaway, classes have run the gamut of interest areas and subjects.

Workshops are filling quickly this year, so don't delay! The full schedule through the end of the year is now up on the website:

Wild Weaving on a Gourd
Garden Getaway

We do run workshops in late winter, but Garden Getaway at the end of March always marks the kick-off of our full-bore workshop season. This year there were 16 workshops focused on Garden Art, Art from the Garden, and the Art of Gardening.

There were workshops in cement and mosaic garden ornaments, willow trellises, basketry, Ikebana tray, vermiculture, gourd birdhouses, herbal soaps and scrubs, canning and organic growing on small spaces.

Early April Workshops

April workshops so far have offered a little bit of something for everyone - creative writing, Photoshop, colored pencil, rug hooking, weaving, mosaic, and jewelry. Whew! Here are photos from just some of the classes:
