Hi Gang,

Just wanted to mention a neat opportunity that will be occuring on April 9th here at RBG. Interested in making a cool birdhouse? See details below and note the class size is limited to the first 15 registered participants... Don't forget Dave Wanninger's woody plant talk Wednesday (Feb. 23rd) evening from 6 pm -8 pm!!!!

Mark D.

Mosaic Birdhouse Workshop
April 9th, 10 am until 1 pm
$40 for RBG members, $45 for non-members
Call Mark at (608) 754-1779

This workshop will be taught by Pixie Miller from The Glass Garden, LLC which is located in Janesville (25 W. Milwaukee Street) and has been in business for 12 years. They are a full service stained glass shop. All materials, supplies and equipment will be provided.

This workshop will go thru the process of covering a small, wood birdhouse with glass and other materials such as beads, rhinestones, nuggets, letters, rocks, etc. all using the mosaic technique. A special adhesive will be used which will allow for you to take your project home that day. Feel free to bring any personal items (old jewelry, etc.) that you would like to incorporate in to your design. Each birdhouse will be pre-painted and have a hook on top for easy hanging.
