Nature Institute to host crafting workshop
Godfrey, Ill- Joined with a professional florist, bring your skills to the Nature Institute’s (TNI) upcoming event, “Nature’s Creations: Winter Wreaths”. On Thursday, November 29th or Friday, November 30th at 6 p.m., to create a one-of-a-kind front door decoration.
Guests are encouraged to bring their own items to match their home’s seasonal decorations, snacks, and wine with this “sips and create” styled event.
Due to higher demand, the workshop has been moved later in the week than previous years.
“This event is a great way to get in the spirit while spending time with friends and family”, Angela Puskar of The Nixon Chicks- Rentals and Décor said of the event. Puskar will also be present to assist guests with their arrangements.
Attendees will be able to choose from provided items or bring their own.
Guests of all denominations and backgrounds are invited to create something that they would be proud to display.
Puskar says that even those that want to steer more towards seasonal/winter items can make a beautiful creation.
“In the past, I’ve created a wreath at this event to matched my winter décor that was filled with blues, golds, and silvers. It’s all about where your imagination takes you.”
Space for participation is limited. Admission is $40 per guest, which includes a pre-made live evergreen wreath and other supplies, such as ribbon, to decoration.
Proceeds from this event will be used for TNI’s mission of preservation, restoration, and education.
Registration is required for this event. Those interested in this workshop can register by visiting www.TheNatureInstitute.org or by calling 618-466-9930.
Starting December 1st, TNI trails will be closed for public use. This is in an effort to allow the nature preserve rest from foot traffic. With the trails being cleared, heighten restoration efforts, such as prescribed burning, will be performed by staff. Trails will reopen on April 1st, 2018. Those interested in seeing TNI property may still do so at any of their upcoming events.
