November 17, 2019 - 12:30pm - 2:30pm

with Sue Pezanoski Browne & Katie Hobday

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Younger children should be accompanied by an adult.

Sue Pezanoski Browne and Katie Hobday, Lynden’s teachers-in-residence, invite you to participate in the Sound Tree Project, the focus of their collaborative artist residency. Working in a grove of trees on the Lynden grounds, Pezanoski Browne and Hobday are constructing an environment filled with clay chimes that they make and fill with personal narratives. This exploration of art, nature, memory, and materials is informed by their thinking about movement and migration—about life as movement interspersed with pauses of various lengths.

On two Sundays this fall, people of all ages can join the artists as they work on their installation. On October 20, participants will explore the tension between movement and stillness by creating a large weaving between the trees. On November 17, you will use clay to add sound to the installation, experimenting with various natural forms to create chimes.

Watch for more Sound Tree Project drop-in workshops in the spring.

Lynden is offering a series of holiday giftmaking workshops in November and December. They range from simple activities suitable for families with smaller children to more advanced workshops for adults. To enhance the celebratory spirit, we will have light refreshments available for participants. Whether you are making a gift for yourself or another, these workshops should provide a cheerful atmosphere for art making as we head into winter. To see a complete list of holiday giftmaking workshops, visit our Workshops page.

Join David Cobb and David Weissman, co-founders of the Milwaukee Craft Guild, in the Lynden shop as they take you through the steps of constructing your very own cutting board. The two Davids will guide you through wood selection, gluing, sanding, and finishing to create a unique family heirloom. No prior woodworking experience is needed. The workshop concludes with bread, cheese, and wine to authenticate the boards
