SCARECROW WORKSHOP SCHEDULE for 2017

There will be two Scarecrow Workshops offer this year:  SEPTEMBER 23th and October 14th.   Workshops will be held at my home, Scarecrow Studio 53 Old South Street, Plainfield Ma.  They will run from 11:00 to 4:00, although if you need a bit more time to finish, that’s fine.  The fee is $95.00 and I ask for a $25.00 deposit to hold your reservation.  All materials are supplied to complete your scarecrow figure, although, if you have a theme, I encourage you to bring accessories to make your scarecrow unique.   We break for lunch so remember to pack one.  To reserve a space at one of the workshops you can email me at mmelle@msn.com or call me at 413-634-5605
