Earth Art Workshop @ The Fort Collins Public Library

  • Fort Collins Public Library

Mother Nature is a master engineer. Through years of evolution, it has fine-tuned the relationship between beauty and structure. Compared with our technology, Nature’s solutions are often less wasteful, longer lived and typically stronger, faster and lighter. Engineers looking for new ideas have found inspiration in nature's designs. Biomimicry, or "life imitating,” is a time-honored route to innovation. By turning to nature for inspiration, scientists, builders, inventors, and artists have created amazing innovations. Nature has inspired amazing land art creations, Velcro, solar power and so much more. Learn how biomimicry has helped us and celebrate the patterns & designs in nature in creating nature mandalas with Wild Roots Studio.

Crafts are aimed for ages 4-11. Projects will be modified to child's ability.

Pre-registration is required. Space is limited. More info on how to register coming soon.
