THIS CLASS IS SOLD OUT!

Butterfly Pinning and Shadowbox Display (Adults)

Join Amber Oudsema and Eve Boyer, Curators of Education, to learn about the art and science of pinning butterflies. Get inspiration from the Jennifer Agnus: Flying Jewels & Other Lofty Insects exhibition before learning how to place and pin your specimen on a pinning board. In the second session, unleash your creativity as you design an artful composition for your shadowbox display. Carefully mount your butterfly and witness its transformation into a treasured keepsake. Leave with the knowledge and tools to continue your butterfly pinning journey, including a pinning board, forceps, and the shadowbox housing your own specimen. NOTE: Butterfly specimens are delicate and require steady hands to pin and mount.

This class meets on June 4 and 18, 5:30-7:30 pm.

Instructors: Amber Oudsema and Eve Boyer, Meijer Gardens
