Class is sold out.

Bring the family for a special day of magic-making at the Garden. Children will transform into fairies right before your eyes with homemade wings and wands. Little sprites can help to create a fairy village using natural materials. Tiny living rooms, baby bird houses, and miniature decorations are some of the things fairy homes need. Leave your creations at the Garden for our pixies, gnomes, and elves, or bring them home for your own fairy friends to use. You might even be inspired to create your very own fairy home to make sure they’re cozy and comfortable.

The fee per participant is $10 for member families and $15 for nonmember families. There is no fee for non-participating family members.
