You know the gorgeous, super-shiny Universal Tree of Life. Its the enormously flashy sculpture in front of AVAM made from mirrors and bits of glass that’s one of Baltimore’s most beloved images. Well, on Saturday, January 17th, you can join its creator, Bob Benson for a fabulous one-day workshop to learn how to make your own “Flashies”; that is, those dynamic, sparkling decorations made from mirrors and marbles and everything that Benson has become known for. Participants will receive instruction on cutting and assemblage and will leave the workshop with at least two finished decorations to keep and dangle wherever they choose. It’s perfect for beginners, or for those who’ve done a bit of flashy-ifying before.
