FOLK LIFE REMINDER: Build The Tree of Life Deva at the Folk Life Festival in Seattle (plus a test run of the first completed Cedar Waxwing!!!!!), Seattle Center, Memorial Day Weekend:
On behalf of the Fremont Arts Council, The Tree of Life Deva is going to be presented at Folk Life (Memorial Day Weekend) in the Creative Commons – a space for all things creative. Children, aged 3 to 103, will attach hand-dyed silk strips for leaves which will flow from the puppets’ branch-like arms. We’ll then show you how to make silk flowers using a tyeing method that will have the leaf-life tendril strips flowing in rivulets of silk roses! Join us!
