Invasive Plants of Clear Creek County

CSU Master Gardeners

Thursday, April 26, 6-7:30pm

Can you tell which is a noxious weed and which isn't? There are many "look-a-likes" that can be easily confused with native or non-invasive ornamental species. Likewise, invasive species can be difficult to identify, especially in their seedling stage. Join CCC Master Gardener Melissa Baynes to learn which invasive plants are of particular concern for our Clear Creek County community, how to identify them at both the seedling and adult stage, and the best recommended management practices for each species.

FREE, donations appreciated, 30 max / 8 min. RSVP by March 23     Register

Summer Flowers & Fruit: A Pastel workshop
with Susan T. Fisher
Saturday, June 2, 10am-4pm

Pastels are not a shade of pale! They are a vibrant connection between you and the things you love to paint. Pastels have a long history among artists who appreciate their versatility and ease of application. Begin with small studies that create a roadmap to a finished piece, do exercises in color selection to increase your personal color vocabulary and learn how to make no-fear choices to a finished painting. Individual attention and instructor demonstrations will boost your confidence and your work. Ms. Fisher will provide some materials for the students: Pastels, some pastel papers, and subjects for painting.
     Susan has served as Coordinator for the Botanical Art and Illustration Program at Denver Botanic Gardens, and Director of the Art Institute at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. She is past president of the Board of Directors of the American Society of Botanical Artists and Honorary Director of the Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Illustrators. Her illustrations and sculptures appear in numerous periodicals, books, florilegia, private collections and national exhibits.

Scarf and Felting workshop
with Karin Neidfeldt
Saturday, October 20, 10am-4pm

Join Karin Niedfeldt for her needle felting and scarf making workshops. Learn both needle and wet felting techniques. Sign up for one or both!     website
Felting Workshop, 10am-1pm 
Needle felting is a process that uses sharp, barbed needles to take loose wool fibers and turn them into wool sculptures. In this class we will make a bird or whatever your muse wants to make. This is an introduction to needle felting techniques. Because the needles are very sharp, only children over the age of 10 are allowed. If you have some experience, please come and Karin will help you with more advanced techniques also.
Scarf Workshop, 2pm-6pm 
Wet Felting: Cobweb Silk/Merino Wool Scarf
Using the softest merino wool that has been blended with silk fibers, participants will learn the basics of wet felting to make a very soft, lightweight scarf. The process of wet felting uses an olive oil soap gel, water and rolling in bubble wrap to make items. For Scarf Workshop, email with your color preferences (greens, blues, reds, browns, etc).
$25 Felting Workshop only | $35 Scarf Workshop only | $50 Felting & Scarf Workshop
