Create a living sculpture by shaping soil and covering it with grass! These sculptures take on many shapes and sizes, from sod animals and other figures, to more abstract creations. One of the most popular forms is a very literal translation of the term “lawn furniture.” Sod sofas, chairs, and chaise lounges are all the rage in both public and private settings. In addition, they’re as functional as they are fun. They have a lot of appeal since they can provide a place to hang out and congregate in a public space such as a school garden, community green space or public garden. Come to learn how to create a piece of living furniture, and then – the sky will be the limit regarding what you can create on your own!

  • $10 for registration by April 19th - refunded upon arrival
