Tree Veneration: Personification of Bough & Limb

June 30, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

[CANCELLED] Personification of Bough & Limb

The next Tree Veneration art workshop that will be offered is Personification of Bough & Limb.  The class will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 30th in the Dogwood Center located at 2817 Boyds Bridge Pike.

This workshop begins with an investigation into the anatomy of trees, drawing out similarities and connections with human anatomy.  We will explore a variety of historic examples of tree personification from several cultures.  Participants will select a tree on the grounds to dress in human clothing with an eye towards attributing specific human characteristics in the adornment of their carefully chosen tree.

All supplies will be provided, but if you have a pair of fabric scissors please bring it with you.  Please wear comfortable work clothes as we will spend most of our time creating art installations.

Registration for individual classes $20 per class for Garden members and $25 per class for non-members.  Pre-registration is required.  To register online, please visit www.knoxgarden.org/TreeVeneration.  Please call 865-832-8717 or email info@knoxgarden.org with any questions.
