GARDENING WITH NATIVE PLANTS

SPRING EPHEMERAL PAPERCUTTING
Capture the fleeting magic of woodland spring flowers with the delicate art of papercutting. You will learn basic papercutting techniques from silhouette artist Jenny Lee Fowler—whose work has been featured in Martha Stewart Living, House Beautiful, and Better Homes and Gardens—and use her one-of-a-kind patterns to create a piece of 8˝ x 10˝ art to frame and hang in your home. No previous art experience is required.
Saturday, 4/8, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Jenny Lee Fowler | Bard | 174CRF153A
$89*/95
 
POLLINATOR PAPERCUTTINGS
Use the ancient tradition of papercutting to “draw in silhouette” and celebrate the role of pollinators—birds, bats, beetles, bees, and butterflies—and their connections with plants. You will choose a pollinator and plant pairing to inspire your own original design that you will turn into a work of art with the help of Hudson-based paper artist Jenny Lee Fowler. No previous art experience is required.
Saturday, 4/15, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Jenny Lee Fowler | Bard | 174CRF165A
