Many of us are aware of, and in awe of, the beauty and diversity found in nature, but how many of us consider that the plants and flowers we are seeing outside—in our neighborhoods, on hikes, or even by the side of the road—can be used to make our own crafty creations? How awe-some is that?
Join us this Sukkot – AKA Chag ha-Asif (the harvest festival of gathering) – to learn the basics of foraging in LA and beyond. You’ll receive our handy guide to ethically gathering plants in your own (extended) backyard. Then enter into our virtual sukkah for a hands-on workshop led by local artist Jenny Yurshansky, where we will use our foraged plants and objects to create our own sukkot artifacts.
All levels and artistic backgrounds welcome.
Monday, October 5 at 6:00 pm
