Class Offering # 1

I supply everything you need and walk you through making your own bird nesting balls, including hammering a decorative copper hanger and accenting it with beads and a pewter charm. $20 each, takes about 1 hour to make. Lunch is not included, but is offered for an extra fee.- see below.
What are bird nesting balls?
The birds love soft fiber to line their nests both for hatching their young. Some birds that like to overwinter in cooler climates will even use it when they are not brooding young. They will pull the fiber out of the nesting ball, little bits at a time. it usually take a year or two for it to be fully emptied. The great thing is they can be refilled as needed!
