Walk your creativity outside and into the garden! In this one-of-a-kind workshop, we use clay to create adornments for an outside oasis. We think about how a garden is art and how art is part of the garden. We look at garden culture from around the world as we consider how to accent our own green spaces – perhaps a red mobile draws attention to your red tulips. We learn hand-building and glazing techniques as we create colorful tiny houses for creatures to visit, retro garden gnomes to bring good luck, delicate sounding wind chimes, and more!
