Join Susan Perrine from 9 a.m.-noon and/or 1-4 p.m. on Friday, June 14, for a group art project in the traditional-arts area in the Children’s Garden. She’ll show us how to weave twigs together to form a tunnel children will enjoy all summer, and you and your family are invited to participate. No reservations are necessary, but we encourage you to dress casually and be prepared to get grubby. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Then return on the 15th for a reception from 3:00-4:30 p.m. to “unveil” the tunnel.

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 teach several classes and will create artistic works utilizing and weaving twigs. You’ll find the programs on the calendar. To watch her at work, simply come any time while she’s in residence, except during class times.
