A Workshop with Claire Hitchcock Tilton

Plan Your Vegetable Garden for Continuous Harvest, Feb. 3, 2018

Fee: $15/ $10 members (all materials included)
Registration: Advance registration required. Register by phone at 414-446-8794.

This series of workshops takes a broad view of what it means to garden. Whether you consider yourself a backyard gardener, a forager, a farmer, or a steward of the land, the Garden Series will have something for you. From formal garden design to identifying and learning to use wild growing plants, we span a range of techniques and philosophies. Because of the range of subjects covered, these classes can be enjoyed by new and experienced gardeners alike.

Now, in the depths of winter, is the time to start thinking about your vegetable garden. Claire Hitchcock Tilton will teach you how to choose plants for continuous harvest from spring to late fall. Topics include choosing plants for your specific site, care requirements for different plants, companion planting (pairing plants that work together for mutual benefit), plant rotation, and seed collection. You will develop a master plan for your garden that includes a list of what to plant and when, and you will be ready to place your seed orders with confidence. Bring your seed catalogues, questions, and ideas.

Once you make your garden plan, you might want to make a garden journal to track your progress. Join Cary Suneja for a special bookmaking workshop on March 3.

A Workshop with Jane Moore

Wet Felted Table Runner with Jane Moore, Feb. 11, 2018

Fee: $60/ $50 members (all materials included)
Registration: This workshop is now full. Sign up for our e-list for info on future sessions.

Wet felting is an ancient and magical hands-on fiber art process. In this workshop we will use our imaginations and colorful wool fibers and yarns to lay out unique designs for our table runners. Next, prepare for an arm workout and some splashing as we use soap and water to roll and transform our fibers into felt cloth.

No experience required. We have aprons, but please wear clothes suitable for artmaking and bring an old bath-sized towel.
