The birdbath program was such a success that we’ve decided to add a second workshop for October. This time we’ll be creating three stackable hypertufa pumpkins (ranging from 6” to 10”) using cement and pantyhose! These easy and fun to make artificial stone pumpkins will add a festive touch to either your indoor or outdoor fall décor.
Location: Churchill Gardens, 12 Hampton Rd, Exeter NH.Churchill Gardens will supply masks and gloves since we’ll be working with concrete. The workshop will be held outside and social distancing will be observed. The program will be capped at 20 participants. No refreshments will be served but you are welcome to bring your own beverage. The cost to members is $45. Please send a check made out to GIGC, to PO Box 49, New Castle AND RSVP to Claudia (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 6.
