FAERIE COTTAGE WORKSHOP
Bring your beads, buttons, scraps of fabric, and findings from nature. I'll bring my hot glue guns, clippers, tiny pillows, beads, buttons, lace, ribbons, fabric, oddities of nature, and a few tiny surprises. If there are woods nearby, we will take a little field trip outside to gather from the local nature. (Faeries don't always like materials that are foreign to them. They prefer it if you build your homes and furnishings from things you find yourself while in nature.

Here are some images from my last workshop at Olbrich Gardens. The class was filled and my apologies to those who had to be put on a waiting list. www.olbrich.org
Everyone did a fantastic job making faerie cottages. Here are a couple of my favorites from the class.
This photo is from my Faerie Cottage workshop at Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts during the Garden Getaway.
This is one of my favorites from my last cottage workshop in Mineral Point, Wisconsin on March 24th.
Great job Barbara!
CAMP GAYA GROTTO WORKSHOP
The faerie grotto workshop at Camp Gaya was great fun. We had men, women, boys and girls working together to create whimsical faerie dwellings. If the Swiss Family Robinsons were faeries, they would have loved these structures.
