Workshop – Plant an Animal Topiary

Update March 23 – all March and April animal workshops are cancelled.  Stay tuned for any updates in a few weeks.

Time to Plant Animals! Join us to plant or replant an animal topiary.  These animals make a great addition to any garden setting. Plant them fully or simply – they always are a treat. We will provide the instruction, work space and clean up and you create an adorable moss topiary animal for your yard. For the March and April workshops, your animal will stay here and go to the RSF Spa until just after Mother’s Day, We ask that you pick them up by Sat. May 16, 2020, to avoid additional care costs.  In the spa they will be well taken care of, fed and watered. You’ll be amazed when you come to take them home. Classes are in March and April with an open house style one in early June.  Cost for the class is $25 for one animal, $5 for any additional animals; plus the cost of materials used (for example, the animal and the plants.)

Update:  at this time, we are not cancelling these workshops.  We need a little extra dirt therapy and as long as we all stay diligent, we know we can make this work!  In keeping with the current health climate, we are limiting these classes to 30 guests.  There will be plenty of room to space out and work.  Thank you for your understanding.

Dates were: Friday, March 27 1 pm (class is full as of 3-16-2020); Friday March 27 5 pm; Sat March 28 9 am (class is full as of 3-16-2020); Sat March 28 1 pm (Class is full as of 3-2-2020); Sat April 4 9 am; NEW Fri, April 3 at 1 pm,  Sat April 4 1 pm; Wed June 3, open house 1 pm to 6 pm (this class is $20, plus the cost of materials)

Registration is required and class limit is 30.  You will be charged the $25 at time of sign up and the remainder of the cost will be due the day of your workshop.

If you already have an animal and you are signing up for a March or April Workshop, please feel free to drop off your animal for refurbishing (for example more moss, new moss, or just cleaning up.)  The cost of cleaning up and adding any new stuffing is $4 per 6″ pot of moss.  We will have moss available at the workshop for self stuffing too.

Prices of some of the mossed animal frames are: small frog and turtle $40, medium frog $59, medium turtle $69, 40″ tall heron $189, rooster $149. (The June class is an open house format and is $20 workshop cost, plus the cost of materials and your animal goes home with you that day!)
