The class will be led by Wes Cropper. Wes has a long history in the art of model making, constructing with paper and wood. Birdhouse construction processes fulfill his passion for 3D spaces, shapes and forms. He has built several birdhouses for family and friends and is happy to encourage the natural community of birds with suitable housing, while reclaiming and restoring materials to their usefulness.
