Class Description

This class will start with the basic skills of gem tree making and graduate to an exploration of multiple styles and advanced designs of truly beautiful and species-specific trees. We will discuss, study and sample a variety of construction methods, as well as how to plan and create our own patterns from nature. Lab fee includes wire, leaf stones, bases and materials to make at least three trees of the student's choice. All instructions, patterns, tools and materials are provided. Students are encouraged to be creative and bring ideas to design their own trees. A large variety of additional wire, leaf and base materials will be available for purchase.
