A Fairy Garden is a miniature garden complete with structures and actual living plants. It is designed to give your green thumb a place to tend year-round and to lure fairies – and with them – good luck to your home. It’s a tiny space created and tended with love and may include tiny houses, pathways, fairies and fairy playgrounds like a pond, slide, treehouse, etc. In this outdoor workshop you will be guided through the process of building, designing and maintaining your own “Fairarium” in a 14″ x 14″ x 3″ cedar box.
$34.95 covers the following:
– cedar box or a $10 product credit if you bring your own container *
– the soil
– various mini rocks and mosses
– two 2-4″ plants
– your choice of fairy
– paint, if you would like to paint your box, rocks, fences or trinkets you have that have faded from the sun. (Our Country Chic & Fusion Paints are indoor/outdoor and have UV protection.)
– our help and expertise
Sat. April 28, 11 AM or 1 PM; or, Sat. May 12, 11 AM or 1 PM
More plants and fairy trinkets will also be available for purchase to enhance your garden.
Please feel free to bring your own container and embellishments but there will be plenty of container options available for purchase as well as plants, accessories, string lights and other decor.
Registered adults who want to bring a child or children to help them create are welcome to free of charge. (Note that it will be held outside on the sidewalk so children must be well supervised by the adult responsible. Thank you.)
* If you bring your own container it should be fairly shallow, e.g. 3″, so that you can clearly see the details of your garden AND so it will be light enough to carry. The boxes we provide have drainage, which is something you will have to prepare in advance with your own container. e.g. rocks in the bottom or a few holes in the bottom.

Paint brushes, sandpaper, preparation materials & coaching while you finish your furniture item. Bring your own paint or purchase at the studio.

A side table or chair can be finished in one session, dressers will take two days so please book two concurrent studio sessions and leave your piece overnight.
