The Black Tulip

black tulip

Alexandar Dumas wrote this classic which some of us read as young children, not fully understanding the complete story.  In this workshop, we tell the story of the Black Tulip against the historical background of how tulips were desired in the Holland in the 1600s.  The Tulip mania were the first of the stock market crashes!  We will discuss how people can desire objects like Hello Kitties and what that means. 

Art project - We will create a small garden of flowers using polymer clay.  And yes, we will make Black Tulips.  Polymer Clay is an expensive art materials.  Hence the higher cost of the workshop.
