We Had a Great “Chime”

Posted on

Thanks to Susan Dannenfelser,Kirk Beck, our volunteers and material donators, the Wind Chime Workshop was a success!

We had 21 participants by day’s end, six of whom were helpers, and three of whom were engaged children.20140518-151653-55013179.jpg
All the “smiling faces added to the wonderful energy in the class! Good right brain tickling is also good for the soul!” commented instructor Susan.

Thanks, Susan. As Chris Young said, “We had a lovely chime together.”20140518-151652-55012168.jpg

Make a Little Music on Saturday, May 17

Posted on Updated on

Come to the garden Saturday, May 17 for a fun day of making music!

Wind chimes can be made with an exciting mixture of elements. We’ll have fasteners, adhesives, and basic materials, like filament, string, drills, glues, and bamboo. But to make your wind chime uniquely yours, bring items like old keys, bottle caps, earrings, beads, flatware, (smooth) sea glass, and industrial hardware. Just use your imagination!

You’ll have time to make one for yourself and possibly one for the garden. Search the web for inspiration for your music maker!

Join instructor Susan Dannenfelser, local sculptor and garden member, at the Lafayette Community Garden from 2:00PM to 5:00PM to discover your inner artist.
