Fairy & Gnome Village Event This Saturday
Want to learn how to build a fairy or gnome house out of natural materials? Southborough Open Land Foundation has set aside a special site for the settling of a Fairy and Gnome Village at Beals Preserve just for you!
Please join us for Creating your own Fairy or Gnome House, lead by Deborah Costine on Saturday, May 12, from 2-4 pm. This program is free and all are welcome. Meeting location and map.
The Fairy and Gnome Village will be created during the spring and summer of 2018 with oversight by artists puppeteer, and naturalist Deborah Costine in collaboration with a committee of fairy house enthusiasts throughout Southborough. This program is an opportunity for creative and resourceful architects of all ages to build a house within the village using natural materials found at the Preserve. Our goal is to honor nature by using what is at hand to create whimsical structures in a village setting.
The program will begin with this workshop, and continue throughout the summer.
- Materials must be sourced from nature, specifically from Beals Preserve and its surroundings.
- No purchased or manufactured materials are allowed
- Houses should be built on site
- Each house will receive a sign, identifying the architect, as well as publication on the Art on the Trails Blog.
