Decorating With Corn

An intense working session! A few of the members creating corn husk dolls.

Lauri Alderson of Stirling had both children and adults working to create corn husk art at the September meeting of the Tweed and District Horticultural Society.

Lauri brought a wealth of natural materials…milkweed pods, wild flowers, rabbit fur and a bucket of corn husks. Lauri had softened the corn husks by allowing them to soak in a mixture of water and bleach. Members worked together to create corn husk dolls, cornhusk angels and even corn husk warriors! Simply by tying, snipping and gluing, the husks were transformed into corn husk art…even members who claimed they had no artistic talent were busy trying their hand at creating the dolls.

October Meeting: Steve Nicholson, chef and instructor at Loyalist College will be cooking some unique dishes using fresh garden produce. There will be samples for everyone to try so bring your appetite.

Looking ahead…..Christmas Luncheon at Loyalist College will be held Friday December 14 at noon. More details to follow.
