CEMETERRARIUMS
A Workshop with Carla Valentine
Sunday 7th October 2018 from 2:00 till 4:00 pm

No household should be without a “cemeterrarium” - a self-sustaining miniature representation of a graveyard. Pathologist and mortician Carla Valentine will guide you through building your own micro-necropolis housed in an elegant glass dome. Discover which plants are suitable for terrariums and find out how to craft tiny tombstones out of sculpey clay, to transform bare twigs into miniature trees and to populate your diminutive garden of rest with a host of macabre models. All materials will be provided at this workshop and you'll go home with your own pocket-sized cemetery.
