Using wire and real gemstones, we will create gorgeous tiny trees – each one as unique as its creator! Each beautiful tree will sit on a sturdy base you choose in class; we'll have interesting stones, unusual pieces of wood, and slices of agate. Or bring your own special piece you'd like to create around! You should be able to complete two trees in the class period. One for you and one for a gift?
Students are encouraged to bring a pair of small needle nose pliers, if possible. All other necessary supplies, including wire, gemstones and use of a project specific tool are included in the class fee.
Material Cost: $25
About the Instructor:
Lyn Parker Haas has focused her work on Pine Needle basketry, studying with Nadine Spire and Pam Talsky, both very accomplished pine needle basket makers. While working to get “really good” at one craft, she enjoys exploring others: reed baskets, braiding, Zentangle and now Gem Trees. She has taught in Wyoming. Lyn’s first year at the Fletcher Farm Festival was 2016, and her baskets are on exhibit in Bellows Falls, VT.
