Join birder Chuck Stebelton the second Sunday of each month (except October, when the walk is on the third Sunday) for a small-group, socially distanced bird walk on the grounds. Keeping to the perimeter of the garden, we’ll watch for seasonal migrants and resident bird species and seek out the best bird habitats to identify as many species as we can. Please dress for the weather and plan to walk in varied terrain. Bring your binoculars if you have them; no previous birding experience required.

A Workshop with Leslie Perrino

Fused Silver Loop Earrings with Leslie Perrino, Feb. 11, 2018

Fee: $90/ $80 members (all materials included)
Registration: Space is limited; advance registration required. Register by phone at 414-446-8794. Please note: proof of Covid vaccination is required.

In-person safety precautions:
Social distancing will be practiced at all times. All participants are required to wear masks. Extra masks will be available for those who need them.

Fusing is an ancient technique used to permanently connect precious metals, in this case, fine (pure) silver wire. Cleaner, faster, and less toxic than soldering, fusing involves the use of a hand torch. Leslie Perrino will show you how to fuse fine silver wire into loops that can then be made into earrings complete with earwires. Once you master the techniques, you will have time to make more earrings. No experience required, this workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those looking to expand their jewelry-making skills. All materials and tools supplied. You are welcome to bring beads to add to your earrings.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages.
