An edible gardening event with Garde Shop in Summerland, CA. on Nov. 21st & 22nd.
Celebrate Cherry Blossom season with an afternoon workshop of Japanese flower arrangement with acclaimed architect & Ikebana artist, Ravi Gunewardena. Ravi will demonstrate and guide you through the basic concepts of the subtle, yet complex nature of Japanese flower arrangement. Ravi Gunewardena of Escher Gunewardena Architecture, eschergunewardena.com, has practiced and mastered the sublime art of Ikebana. We will supply all that is needed to create an Ikebana arrangement that will inspire you to see and appreciate plants, flowers and natural life in an entirely new form as the discipline of Ikebana embraces the ephemeral transition of living beauty and its inevitable decay. Sign-ups to go out mid February.

REPURPOSING YOUR CLOSET
Join us and our dear friend Ariana Morgenstern as she guides us through an afternoon of quilt making. By day she's KCRW's Executive Producer, Music Dept. But in her free time, Ariana is also an artisan. Her practice in the art of stitching evolved to hand crafting leather scraps into functional bags, and repurposes her own t-shirts and sweaters into exquisite quilts with a subtle narrative of her lifetime dedicated to independent music and art making. Learn how to craft quilts by up cycling your own t-shirts, blouses, tote bags and more. This workshop guides us to rethink beloved garments that no longer fit and breathe new life into them in order to keep them out of landfills. Ariana will guide you to transform these pieces in to works of functional art! April 17th, 2021. Sign-ups to go out April 5th.
