~ Hanging Air Plants ~
One of the latest workshops at Hutch repurposes a glass jar and an old spoon creating a whimsical hanging planter for a fun plant. I chose to use air plants because they are interesting looking and supposedly easy to take care of.
A little reindeer moss to nestle the air plant into added some more spring green. An old page from a geography book lines the interior of the jar adding a special personal touch and warmth. This is a short 1 hour session and all the materials are included in the $30. cost. The next class is scheduled on Monday, April 23rd from 1-2pm. To sign up contact Chris at Hutch. #360-399-1223.

~ Garden Club Whirligigs ~
The latest whirligig workshop consisted of members of the Woodinville Garden Club and we had been planning this for over a year. I knew that they would be excited and ready to go.
And it was very true....whenever someone pre paints objects for their whirligig I know that they've been thinking and planning for a while. Love the color!
Hustling and bustling in the studio!
Here, Cindy and I are discussing the proportions on her gig.
Adding a second hub created more height and distance between wind catchers.
They were a fun but very focused group, which is the perfect combination of both maker and whirligig.
A great whirligig needs to focus the wind's energy and be fun to look at.
I always like it when a parent and their child sign up for a workshop. That's quality time and a great memory.
Dangling items from wire is a technique that has been utilized a few times over the years, but placing a copper tub at top and drilling random holes in the side walls to create a leaky tub effect was a workshop first.
So many tiny little screws and washers.
Thanks Woodinville Whirligig Team!
And a special thanks to Rebecca Love for volunteering and being the photographer that captured all these nice pictures.
