Come fly away to a magical fantasy land! This workshop is meant for one adult (parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles, or anyone) and one child to team up and create a one-of-a-kind fantasy fairy garden in a basket! Using natural materials such as twigs, stones, moss, and leaves, each garden will be completely unique.
