Winter Mandala Wreath Making Workshop

studio g mandala wreath making classThe Thanksgiving event was all I could have hoped for (and more) and I am so grateful that so many of you could come (we sold out both sessions!).  Next time we will have to chat more…that was my only regret from the day; I felt I spent much of the time in awe of it all…and not really connecting with those of you who were there.

Would you like to see the pictures?   I have a few here (they are my amateurish cell phone versions)….but there are many more on Kelly Fitzsimmons site — she was our pro photographer at the event she did an amazing job capturing the excitement and creativity!  (go here and then navigate to client galleries and then use the word ‘candlewreath’ as the password — then you can peruse all 240+ beautiful images)  I will get a smaller curated gallery up on the new Events page (did you notice that up there in the top bar? — more to come there – soon).

So we are doing it again!

This time we will be making wreaths…but not just any old wreaths.

We will be inspired by ancient mandala art to create our own art pieces that can be refreshed annually as you move into the holiday  and winter seasons.  (more on mandalas coming over the next few days).  Using as many local and found materials we will again bring our landscapes indoors and use the seasons offerings to inspire us!  (and we will eat yummy food, drink warm drinks and generally toast the season in good garden barn party fashion!)

You can reserve your spot on Eventbrite.   This class is a bit more involved (and the price and length of time reflect that) and for this reason we aren’t able to do 2 sessions in one day.  We are however holding open Dec 13th (from 1-3) for a second session should their be enough interest.  After the first session fills out we will have a wait list — if we have more than 15 on the wait list, we will open the second session (so make sure you put your name down on the list if you are interested!).  We can’t wait to see you again!

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

After so many years of installing countless commercial and residential holiday containers, I could do it in my sleep. Seriously, winter containers have to be the easiest thing you can throw together in less than 20 minutes and I’m going to do you a favor and type up the quick and dirty 101 of getting…

Things are Going To Be Messed Up

UPDATE: You can see it is taking shape — hope you like it so far….still working….but getting there!! A serious change up is in order around here and while it is happening, things are going to be a little off. I tend to do these things myself (I just like to have my fingers all…

A Tale of Improving Weather, Gardening and Anaphylactic Shock

The snow is piling up (over the windows at this point) and my cabin fever is turning into a strange and crazy thing. I think I might be developing photokeratitis. We’ve run out of firewood and the oversized roof-cicles are making me feel like I live in a cage. So it is no wonder that…

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

My wife asked me as we drove with our four kids from Maine to North Carolina, what I would like for Christmas. You know the feeling of not really wanting anything other than warmth, good company, good food, and a healthy, happy family. Well, I am having those feelings this holiday season but there are…
