Woodland Fairy Homes Family Workshop
Join ArtisTree and the National Park Service under the big tent to construct fantastical fairy houses with items from nature. Construct unique and charming little homes using a vast array of pre-gathered materials, tools, and any natural treasures you may choose to bring with you! Choose a site along the ArtisTree hiking trails to place your teensy abode and further enhance it with moss, stones, leaves, acorns, sticks, and any other items you find. Give your fairy house its own magical name and plot it on the Fairy House Trail Map we’ll share with visitors all summer long so they can investigate the tiny wonders tucked away in our woodlands. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
This class is held at ArtisTree Community Arts Center.
