Capture Nature in Resin

with Carolyn Quick



Thursday, August 8, 2019
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Tuition: $20 Materials: $30

Create your own nature masterpiece! Using a two-part resin and your choice of inclusions, we will be creating a 3-1/4" round piece of art. Pine cones, pine needles, catkins, birch bark, and other natural items will be supplied. You are also welcome to bring your own inclusions such as charms, beads, photos, anything!

Your final creation will set in 24 hours and can be picked up at the Folk School the next day. (Special arrangements can be made during class to take it with you and/or ship it.) It can be be drilled in class for use as a basket center for either of the pine needle basketry classes, as an ornament, or even a suncatcher! 

You will leave with a new skill that can be used to capture your adventures and memories in a new and unique way.
