Event Overview

POSTPONED UNTIL FURTER NOTICE - when the venue is available again I'll relist it!


This will be a two-session class. In Part One, on April 2nd from 5:30-7:30 we will assemble the wood birdhouse. Then on May 7th from 5:30-7:30, will be decorating the birdhouse.

All materials will be included and the wood pieces will be pre-cut for you. I'll show you how to nail the house together, and attach the roof and latch with hinges. You'll get a pattern to take home with you in case you want to make more on your own.

During the second session, we'll paint, stencil and decoupage while learning how to make it all weatherproof and wrinkle-free.
