June Workshop

PlantCraft Designs

I'm a Bradenton resident since 1992, and own PlantCraft Designs with my husband. Art degrees and years of experience in the garden industry led to combining these interests and skills in our current enterprise: nature-inspired art, incorporating easy care plants and natural materials. You can find me at the Bazaar on Apricot & Lime in Sarasota Thursdays-Sundays and at various area shows, events and markets. 

Painting with Moss”

The latest pieces we've been doing are moss art, using various types of real preserved mosses, ferns, lichen, pods branches, reclaimed wood, shells and found objects. Some have a peaceful woodsy feel, some are undersea fantasies, some are modern and industrial. The concepts are only limited by your imagination. I'll demonstrate how to start with an empty window box, a glue gun and a pile of miscellaneous material, and end up with a little gem of nature to hang on your wall: one that requires no watering or care! Kits are $20, and include shadow box, oasis, an assortment of moss and other plants and natural items. In addition, I'll bring some extra materials to use, but feel free to bring your own bits and pieces to really personalize your work.

Note: if you take the class, disposable gloves are a good idea, as dye from the moss can give you an actual “green thumb”.
