Make A Botanical Print Pendant: Precious Metal Clay® Workshop (9:30 am - 3:30 pm)

This is your chance to try PMC (Precious Metal Clay®) without the pressure of purchasing tools.  Led by artist Lisa Salsbury, participants will make a PMC pendant with a botanical print made from the impression of a chosen flower or leaf.  During the class, the pendant will be constructed, fired and finished, and will be colored with a patina to accentuate the impression.  Students will leave the class with a finished and ready to wear pendant.  No metal clay experience is necessary for this class.  All materials will be provided, including a choice of flowers and leaves.  Students are encouraged to bring their own flowers or leaves if they have them (the flowers or leaves should be fairly small – one inch or less is best).  PMC is a clay consisting of microscopic silver particles in a binder that when fired at a high temperature, burns away and leaves a pure silver piece.  The cost for the workshop is $75 for Woodlawn members/$85 for non-members and includes all material.  Bring a bag lunch.  As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling Woodlawn at 667-8671 or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it Lisa has been making jewelry as Willow and Me jewelry for several years and specifically with PMC since 2006. She is a frequent exhibitor at art shows.

Native Pollinators: Habitats In Your Garden (10:00 am - 12:00 - noon)

Woodlawn 2.0 – Redesigned For 21st Century Living - A Design Forum (3:00 pm - 7:00 pm)

The Black House interior has been undisturbed since 1928. It is filled with possessions and treasures purchased and collected over 100 years by three generations of one family. It is a 19th century masterpiece residing in a 21st century world. Woodlawn 2.0 is a chance to look at the house through a modern lens. Using the ideas and concepts presented by three Maine architectural firms, Elliott + Elliott Architecture, Sealander Architects and Design Group Collaborative,  we will explore what it would take to transform the Black House into a contemporary living space and meet the demands of today’s sophisticated home buyer. The cost is $20 for Woodlawn members/$25 for non-members and includes the forum and wine and cheese reception. As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling Woodlawn at 667-8671 or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
