VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Hand Built Garden Totems with Lynn Wood


March 18, 2021 3:30-5:30PM PT / 6:30-8:30PM ET

March 19, 2021 3:30-5:30PM PT / 6:30-8:30PM ET

Instructor:  Lynn Wood

In this virtual workshop, using Zoom video conferencing, Lynn will demonstrate all the parts of a self-supporting garden totem. These totems are a delight in your yard or on your patio. This project allows you to inject your personality and sense of design every step of the way. Lynn will guide you to create an even taller totem after the workshop. This workshop is bound to be both fun and productive. Many skills will be practiced along the way to completing your fun totem. Free templates are included to create the totem pictured.

The demonstration will last for approximately 1.75  hours, after which there will be some time reserved for more in-depth, live Q&A. All workshops will be hosted by the Sonoma Ceramics staff; participants will be encouraged to ask questions using the chat forum in Zoom, and the host will communicate these questions to the instructor during her demo.

Many participants choose to observe the virtual workshop and work later, but you may also work alongside the instructor during the demo. All students will receive the Zoom recording of the workshop to watch at their convenience for two weeks after the workshop.

Free templates are included in this workshop.


Participants must pre-register for the workshop Zoom access & tool list. Once you register, the links will be in your confirmation email.
