Sawdust Art Festival is proud to be working with Bank of America to host a weekend of classes to support Eco Education and Land Stewardship within the Community. Thanks to Bank of America, we are able to offer an exciting variety of complementary classes to the community over this three-day event which will include projects using recycled paint, found objects on the Sawdust Grounds, fabric upcycling, eco printmaking and many others. Below is a list of all available classes and times.

Please register if you would like to participate as spaces are limited to 10 people per class. Space is limited to one class per person. If you are unable to register for your chosen class, it unfortunately means that class is already fully booked. All classes are FREE and include all materials. We look forward to seeing you at this unique event!

Create this super sweet folk family of twig dolls with Nansea Williams.  Using found objects on the ground including twigs, small branches and acorns, let your imagination go wild!
