With their latest Crafts College program, The Friends of Beardsley and Memorial Library are welcoming spring by presenting “Building Fairy Houses” at the Library on Saturday, March 22, 10:30 a.m. This free class is open to children ages 7-12. However, space is limited so advance registration is required. Aerie Mountain’s, Master Gardener, Roxanne Lovell will be the instructor. Constructing these whimsical abodes from common items will give children an opportunity to observe nature and to transform the homeliest castoff into a bit of architecture to celebrate the new season. Although the basic building material will be supplied, participants are encouraged to bring lots of imagination plus found objects (such as pinecones, acorns, seed pods, dried flowers, grasses, leaves, twigs, pebbles, tree bark, gourds, walnut shells, marbles, buttons, seashells, bottle caps, popsicle sticks, bits of fabric, feathers, beads, etc.---and (when possible, extra to share) to embellish their creations. Call 860-379-6043 to Register.
