April 19, 2020 - 10:00am - 4:00pm


Fee: $110/$99 members (all materials included)
Registration: Registration is closed. For info on future sessions, sign up for our e-list.

Participants will produce a series of pendants by collaging materials and covering them in resin. First, you’ll make a mini-collage by choosing from a large selection of decorative papers, photos, and small objects--charms, beads, shells, etc.—and arranging them in a diminutive pendant tray. Then the tray will be filled with clear resin and will harden into a unique pendant. The possibilities are endless! Learn how to prep and reduce bubble formation to get lovely results and expect to bring home at least four pendants by the end of the day. Students are encouraged to bring their own materials and mementos, or collect items on Lynden’s grounds, if desired. No experience required, and all materials supplied. Bring a bag lunch and beverages, and dress for the weather if you would like to do some outdoor collecting.

Note: Students will need to bring boxes or containers to carry their pendants home. You will be transporting curing resin which needs to stay flat and be protected from dust. Low, even boxes with lids (plastic or cardboard shoe boxes, takeout food containers, clamshell containers, Tupperware, etc.). Your pieces will need to be taped down and put in a flat part of the car, such as the back floor.

April 19, 2020 - 12:30pm - 2:30pm

with Sue Pezanoski Browne & Katie Hobday

Please note: the March 15 & April 19 sessions have been cancelled.

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.
