Instructor: Christine Nockels

The birch tree symbolizes rebirth in Celtic tradition, and we will celebrate the dawn of a new year by creating beautiful vases or lanterns using natural materials from our environment. The class will explore methods of preparing materials gathered from nature to create unique items. Students may choose either glass jars (for lanterns) or thick cardboard containers for this project. Materials are provided, but students are encouraged to bring any natural materials they like from home, such as lichen, moss, polypore mushrooms, or seed heads.

Class fee: $10 for first child ($5 for each sibling – discount applies at checkout). After paying, please complete an enrollment form HERE. Catamount Arts is committed to offering quality arts experiences for all students, regardless of ability to pay; please call Anne at 802-748-2600 ext. 109 for information about scholarship funds. Please send a snack with your child (we will have some for anyone who does not have one).

Partial funding provided by an Afterschool and Summer Expanding Access grant.
