For the past five years, the Russell Library children's department has offered an annual Fairy and Gnome House Workshop as part of its summer events. The event was created by one of our children's librarians, Laura Larsen, and is held in July each year. It has grown in attendance and popularity since its inception.
Last July, while photographing the workshop, I overheard several parents say, "I wish there was a fairy house workshop for adults ....” I took the hint and had just enough time to update our children’s program plan to create one just for adults, held in late August. Luckily, the children's department already had a large collection of materials that they let me borrow for the adult event.
Russell Library found that grown-ups love their fairy house-building workshop just as much as kids do.
