Flower Pot Gnome Homes | In-person class

September 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Every yard can use a whimsical, creative touch, so why not add a gnome home? Gnomes are said to be magical protectors of our plants and soil. They can be spotted in gardens all across the globe!
These flower pot gnome homes are a delightful addition to any home landscape, and they are fun for all ages to build, too! Remember: Your gnome home can be as simple or as intricate as you’d like!
In this class, you will make your own gnome home to take home with you. All materials are supplied, but please bring your own pair of gloves. Participants are encouraged to bring additional decorative items from home to enhance their projects.

Additional Information: This class will take place in person at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. All visitors, staff, and volunteers are asked to follow the recommendations of the CDC regarding face masks/coverings and social distancing. These recommendations may vary based on an individual’s circumstances, so individuals should refer to the CDC to determine what recommendations are applicable to them.
