About the Event
Join us for our new after-school kids series that celebrates the wild and mysterious beauty of the world around us.
Using local plants, stone, bone, pigments and fibers, students will learn how to craft nature-based art and all about the harvesting, preparation, and storage that goes into utilizing these natural materials. Participants will be making tools and implements with the materials all around us, including hand carved kitchen utensils, primitive pottery, wildcrafted herbal medicine, basketry and more.
**Please note, this series will include the safe use of hand tools such as carving knives, files, and jewelry saws.**
March 8th through May 31st (11 sessions)
Wednesdays 3:30 to 5PM
$255 / participant
Workshop sessions will not be held on April 5 or May 24th.
All materials are provided.
