44.  TRIO OF WREN HOUSES

 Hillary Lee
Thursday 1p-5p           $60

 

Construct three little dwellings in sections so as to incorporate brass mounting rods.  Each finished wren house is a 1/2” cube, plus roof overhang.  Faux-finish or traditionally paint the wren houses, and top them with shingled roofing, wash-coated in layers to match your designs.  Embellish with brass perches and optional decorations.  In this workshop you will fit hardware, glue, clamp, sand, and paint three wren houses; stain the roof decking, and blend in seams for the shingled roof ridges; and prepare a grass-covered base for mounting your wren houses.
