Turn yourself into a forest fairy with natural materials and fiber arts.

About this Class

This class will use fiber arts skills like basic sewing and weaving to create magical items to turn yourself into a forest fairy. We will use some materials that the teacher and each participant brings, but we'll also spend some time foraging in the area around BARN. These natural items will be combined with fabric, yarn, and thread to turn them into magical items to wear, such as a crown and mask! You will also need a magic wand or staff to make your transformation complete.


  • For students ages 8-10.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Registration closes Monday, July 10.
  • When you register your youth, enter their name in the Youth's Name field and enter the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email." All reminders and important information will go to that email address.

  • You can register your youth for an optional supervised lunch from 12-1 pm for the duration of this class.

This class will make a crown, a mask, a bracelet, and a magic wand or staff.


Bring natural items from your yard, including sticks, leaves, flowers, pinecones, etc. If you would like to make a staff, try to find a stick the correct size - about as tall as you are. Make sure you have permission before picking anything!
