Kids are invited to make their own stylish jewelry of natural materials, including semi-precious gemstone beads. In this workshop for all children (under 12 with an adult; 12 and up on their own), Expert-in-Residence Susan Perrine will show how to create a twig art bracelet. We’ll cut to size supple twigs of maple and cherry harvested from the Gardens, drill them with a fine electric dremel tool, and finish our natural bracelets by threading beads on stretchy cord. Please bring a dremel if you have one.
Susan Perrine, Expert-in-Residence at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens from Tuesday-Saturday, June 11-15, is a contemporary fiber artist interested in exploring ancient techniques. During her Gardens residency as part of our celebration of “Trees, Timbers and Traditions,” Susan will create artistic works utilizing and weaving twigs and teach several workshops. While at the Gardens, Susan and our visitors will weave a twig tunnel in the traditional-arts area of the Children’s Garden. To help Susan with this project, visit the Gardens between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday, June 14. To watch her at work, simply come anytime during her residence, except during class times.
