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.

Leaf Casting in Concrete
Lucy Dinsmore - Horticulturist, Morris Arboretum
Nicky Beadle - Volunteer and former gardener at Brookside Gardens

A piece of sculpture adds a whimsical accent to any garden. Learn how to turn a live leaf into stone and add year-round interest to that perfect nook in your garden during this two-hour workshop. The concrete leaves make great bird baths, stepping stones, or even wall art. Bring your favorite leaf - perhaps a hosta, rhubarb, or magnolia. If you don't have access to leaves, we will have several available. Fee includes all materials to make one large or two small leaf sculptures. Dress for getting
messy. We will meet 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.
