This past Saturday, I held a workshop at the studio on making your own Garden Goddess. Two lovely sisters, Jennifer and Carolyn joined me as we puzzled our way to find the most pleasing and satisfying arrangement of parts for a final masterpiece. Here they are pictured with their final creations. Jennifer engineered an old fan blade to rotate on her goddess and embellished the blades with salvage bling attached with old earring clips. Carolyn suspended a large brass spring in the center of her goddess and spelled out the beginning of her favorite garden poem, “Inch by Inch” on the enamelware colander which was her base.
Want to try your hand at making these goddesses? Instructions for these Garden Goddesses (and 34 other salvage studio projects) are included in our book- The Salvage Studio – Sustainable Home Comforts to Organize, Entertain, and Inspire.
