Illustrated Nature Journaling
Heather Rinehart - Artist

The illustrated nature journal is a work as unique and expressive as the individual who creates it. Whether it is crafted as a record of one's experiences, a workbook of nature study, or for sheer creative joy, journaling can be a powerful tool as well as a rewarding hobby. Working within the beautiful setting of Morris Arboretum, discover the art of illustrated journaling. Materials will be provided, or bring your own. Participants who are bringing their own supplies should bring a blank journal, (or at least some drawing paper) and drawing pencils and/or pens. A small watercolor set is optional.

Sustainable Floral Arrangements
Sustainable Floral Arrangement
Kristen Jas Vietty - Owner, Lunaria Gardens

With more than 80% of America’s flowers being imported, and shipping ability prioritized over seasonality, mainstream floral design can be pretty uninspired. In this class, we’ll learn how to embrace the bounty of the region, using locally grown blooms, invasive foliage, and foraged botanical elements. While you construct a centerpiece to take home, you will learn about foam-free mechanics and garden-style design. Step up your decor or holiday table style, or gain confidence in wedding or
event design. Kristen Jas Vietty is a grower, forager, designer, and owner of Lunaria Gardens, an urban plant nursery and floral design studio. All necessary materials will be provided.

Encaustic Painting Workshop
Leah Macdonald - Teacher, Photographer and Artist, Susan Beard Design Company

Join Leah for a fun, inspiring, and relaxing experience, and learn the ancient art of encaustic painting. Also known as hot wax painting, this process involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. This liquid is then applied to a surface like prepared wood. This innovative style of mixing beeswax and paint adds texture and transforms your photograph into a work of art. You will be guided step-by-step in the process. No experience is necessary. The workshop includes: 11 x 14 photograph, wood panel, beeswax, paint, and brushes. We will meet at the Horticulture Center at Bloomfield Farm. Look for the paved road across Northwestern Avenue from the public garden entrance. Park in the lot and follow the signs to the Horticulture Center.
