It's almost pruning time, and that means lots of free material for creating whimsical structures for your home and garden.
Come to the Canadian Home Workshop Show March 3rd, 4th and 5th and learn how to get started building rustic projects like Mag's twig un-privacy screen, quirky garden seating and wabi-sabi* accessories.
Mag will be on the Main Stage Friday at noon and 2:30, Saturday at noon and 2:00, and Sunday at 1:00.
The term wabi-sabi suggests such qualities as impermanence, humility, asymmetry, and imperfection. Wabi-sabi is an intuitive appreciation of a transient beauty in the physical world that reflects the irreversible flow of life in the spiritual world. It is an understated beauty that exists in the modest, rustic, imperfect, or even decayed, an aesthetic sensibility that finds a melancholic beauty in the impermanence of all things.
[In other words, measuring is overrated and screw-ups can be more engaging than symmetry. If you're the spontaneous type, this is your kind of woodworking.]
