Come and play with rocks, trees, streams, flowers and flowing waterfalls and create your own fantasy forest! In this fun class, you will learn how to make a miniature forest scene come alive with gleaming fabrics, shimmering fibers, Lutradur leaves and Puff Paint trees and rocks. You will also learn design principles as you work with a wide variety of techniques and products to thoroughly explore the possibilities open to us today.
