Build a Fairy House or Gnome Home


Saturday, October 6 (rain date October 13) 9am-2pm
Build a Fairy House or a Gnome Home

Come to Lost Corner Preserve and build a fairy house or gnome home! Building permits will be issued for $10. Friends of Lost Corner staff will be on hand to show you how to your building site! All fairy houses and gnome homes must be created with items found in nature—no artificial or living objects. Bins of natural materials will be available on site for you to use including feathers, dry grasses, leaves, shells, bark, nuts, seed pods, acorns, gourds, pine cones—the possibilities are endless. You are welcome to bring your own natural materials as well! Just two children per adult, please! Plan on at least one hour to design and build your house or home. Last building permits will be issued at 12:45pm! Bring a bag lunch and enjoy a picnic in the park!

Plein Air artists from the Atlanta Artists Center will also be part of the event and will be on site to paint the event as it happens!
