OLD GARDEN SHED 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
FRED COBBS, GEORGIA

This charming garden shed surely has Peter Rabbit lurking nearby! Some of you may chooseto make it a craft room of your dreams, it’s so attractive. I’m turning mine into a doll house builder’s workshop. Students will build the shed then paint and weather it. Special features include a charming Dutch door, accented with a mini spade as a door handle, plus three windows that can be tilted open, adding a great touch of realism. A triangular stained glass window under the eaves adds architectural interest. As do the double doors, which also provide access for moving wheel barrows, plants (or dollhouses) in or out! LED lighting inside and a wood shingled roof. Weathered stud walls and a faux stone floor complete the interior. Fred will demonstrate making bricks for base wall of the shed, a nice custom touch. I can see it being landscaped later with a cottage type flower garden or perhaps a couple of rows of vegetables.
$195
Reserve your spot with a $50 deposit sent to Fred now. Mail your check to PO Box 1613, Buford, GA 30515

Cutest little guy!  His head is ceramic, which you will paint.  He's finished with silver or gold trim and little balls to match silk fabric used.  Jack is jumping out of his wooden box after you’ve painted it using Val’s design or your own.  Bring fine paint brushes, sharp small scissors, tweezers, Aleene’s tacky glue, emery board to sand with, & toothpicks.  Lots of color choices.  The price of this class is so reasonable compared to those at most shows!
