Garden Treasures from Grandma's Attic: July 10th, 10am or July 13th, 6pm
Wood County Master Gardener Volunteers and Lester Public Library of Vesper are offering two sessions of classes, 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 classes will be offered Friday, July 10 from 10:00AM-12:00 PM or Monday, July 13 from 6:00-8:00 PM. Registration is required. There is a limit of 10 people per class.
At these classes, 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.
