An RSVP on the Facebook event page would be a big help!
(but no worries if you're not on Facebook).
Join us for an afternoon of playful collaborative sculpture-making using dried Agapanthus flowers at Berkeley’s Codornices Park. This is the latest installment of the Agapanthus Project, begun in 2010.
People of all ages and abilities welcome.
This summer I collected hundreds of wilting or gone-to-seed Agapanthus flowers from the yards of Berkeley residents (with permission of course!) Now the flowers are dried, the tubular stalks are light and rigid, and the tufts of the flowers (technically the umbellate inflorescences) are like Velcro, allowing us to construct multi-level free-standing sculptures!
See this gallery of photos from past Agapanthus Project gatherings.
Maybe you’ll have a picnic lunch and/or a stroll at the Berkeley Rose Garden across the street before we begin? Or stay afterwards for the sunset at 4:57pm – great view from the top of the Rose Garden!
This event is wheelchair accessible. Restrooms on site. Codornices Park is well known for its 40-foot concrete hill slide and tot play area.
