Garden Treasures from Grandma’s Attic Wood County Master Gardener Volunteers and Lester Public Library of Vesper are offering a class, Garden Treasures from Grandma’s Attic. In these classes you will learn what you need to do to create beautiful and original artwork for your garden by simply piecing together cast-off dishes, glassware and other sundry supplies. The class will be offered Wednesday, July 13 from 6:00pm. Registration is required. There is a limit of 10 people per class, and a $3.00 fee payable to Master Gardeners. At the class, you will assemble at least one original work of garden art that will be ready to take with you and put in your garden when you leave. You need no particular artistic ability. Just come with enthusiasm and leave your fears at home.
What to bring: Clean out your cupboards and bring all the old glassware you can find for re-purposing—plates, vases, candle holders, cups, platters, bowls, etc. Bring in wooden or metal dishware as well. Nothing in your cupboards? Scrounge Goodwill, the Salvation Army or other thrift shops and garage sales for interesting pieces. Bring in extras to share and we can mix and match pieces with others. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty and bring gloves if desired. We will supply everything else that is needed.
