A new take on this very popular course, join Gwen and create a lovely Green Garden plaque ~ as scary / bumbling / friendly as you wish. Gwen will show you how with patient guidance and expertise.

These sculptures of a face surrounded by or made from leaves where branches or vines possibly sprouting from the mouth or nostrils etc and maybe bearing flowers or fruit. Such sculptures in bygone days were commonly used as a decorative architectural ornament, frequently found in carvings on both secular and ecclesiastical buildings.
