Here is your chance to enter the surreal world of fairies in this hands-on fairy garden building class. Families are walked through the easy steps as they work together to construct their very own take-home container fairy garden. The class features all natural materials and will give you an opportunity to let your creative inner- fairy flow!


8/23 – Magical, Musical Instruments and Sculptures!!! – 6-7:30 P.M.

This free family event is fun for all ages! You’ll build imaginative musical sculptures and play music in the Fairy Garden with Thomas McShane (instrument builder, re-purposing king and the shopkeeper at Crestwood Music Shop) and singer/songwriter Pamela Jay. Each child will make a magical “fairy caller” to take home and learn the secrets to calling out the fairies that live in their own backyard!
