Here's a lovely recap of our March First Sunday class from Lynda Weir...
"I took the succulent class at the Art Cottage - it was a perfect day full of sunshine that made smiles bloom! There were six students, and I must say everyone in class had a grand time.
Fro gave us a tour of her garden and said we could take cuttings from any of her plants and then she used a little rhyme to explain the elements of creating a pleasing design when planting a pot or container - something thrilling (tall plant), something filling (ground cover) and something spilling (hangs over the edge). She also said we were free to use whatever treasures we found in the garden, such as small clay pieces, shells, or painted rocks, It was like being a kid on an Easter egg hunt! All of us very adult ladies became so excited and we were dashing throughout the garden, looking in every corner.
Fro had all manner of planting containers on hand, which included clay pots, tin boxes, wooden drawers, large shells and more. While we were all doing some creative planting, she served everyone a slice of pound cake with berries and cream, along with a glass of pink lemonade.
It was such a pleasure meeting the other women and seeing joy on everyone’s face. Fro is such a giving, gracious person and a wonderful teacher - not only of art but also of life!"
Call us to reserve your space now for the April class, which will actually be held on the second Sunday due to the Easter holiday. We'll be painting glass jars and paper flowers with alcohol inks.
Attendance is extremely limited, but we will create a waiting list and offer a second session if there's interest. All supplies plus refreshments are included!
