Want a Workshop Close to You?

If you’d like to host, or know somewhere good to have a workshop, get in touch. I’m willing to travel within 50 miles of Kingston, AR for groups of at least 10. Cost is $25/participant and I bring all the supplies with me, including the glue guns. For farther distances, travel compensation will also be required.

 

The Forest Folk Workshop

The workshop consists of people creating twig art with or without my assistance. My Forest Folk come with me for show and tell, and to inspire new works but participants can make whatever they want – and it doesn’t have to look just like mine. I’m there and ready to help or offer advice so participants can go home with a fabulous work of Forest Folk Nature Art.

I bring everything needed, including my collection of botanicals, like acorns, twigs, moss, preserved leaves, lichens, rocks. Participants browse through it all, choosing the pieces that “speak” to them, and then get to work.

Even the glue guns are provided!

Some of the participants brought items of their own for others to use, like seeds and acorns. As with any great art project, there was lots of glorious mess!

Forest Folk Workshop with Madison Woods at Ozark Folkways in Winslow, AR.
At a Forest Folk Workshop, if the table isn’t messy, we’re not having enough fun.

In a couple of hours there is a whole new civilization of Forest Folk on the table. Everyone goes home with a gorgeous hand-made work of nature art and I get to have a fun time making an artsy mess with some partners in crime!

The First Forest Folk Workshop

The first forest folk workshop took place in 2017 just before Christmas. A very big THANK YOU to John Ford from Ozark Folkways in Winslow, Arkansas for inviting me to do this. And by the way, if you have the opportunity, you should stop in to see all the magnificent art they have in that place.

The Ozark Folkways is an artisan center, a space for creatives to work and gather, but also a place for visitors to stop and see local art. Many of the works made by local artists are on display and for sale. Tremendous talents are living in our Ozarks!

Here’s some pics from the workshop.
