Mrs. Tiers’ Grand Design

March 6th | 12 – 1 PM | Jubilee Cottage | Free
Over 100 years ago, Mrs. Fanny Tiers enacted architectural landscape changes at Goodwood that reflected a change in North Florida history.  Some of these buildings are now in danger. In this Friday Lecture, hear how Goodwood is currently planning to move forward in preserving two buildings renovated by Mrs. Tiers: the Water Tower and Gray’s Cottage.
 

In his lecture “Mrs. Tiers Grand Design; Part one, Back of the Main House” Lee Warner will discuss Mrs. Tiers’ additions to the residential and work structures behind the Main House. He will focus on the history of these buildings and current plans for the Water Tower and the Gray Cottage.

Lee Warner was the senior professional at the US Department of State responsible for architectural curation of culturally significant embassy chanceries and ambassador residences around the world. In this capacity he was project manager for architectural conservation projects. Prior to that he was State Historic Preservation Officer in Alabama, directed National Historic Landmark sites in New Orleans, and Director of the Museum of Florida History.

 

The Inspired Gardener

March 11th | 11:30 AM-1 PM | Carriage House

For Felder Rushing, gardening is about fun. From listening to all 5 of the senses and connecting with the Earth, Rushing’s philosophy is based on “slow gardening,” low maintenance gardening techniques that allow for time to enjoy the beauty you’ve created.

Felder Rushing, a 10th-generation American gardener, will speak at Goodwood’s 18th annual Garden Symposium present by the Tallahassee Garden Club. Rushing will present a seminar titled “Tough Flowers for Florida Gardeners” incorporating his “Slow Gardening” approach that which allows individuals to “find their personal gardening bliss.” He advocates using all five senses from season to season by “the cultivation of locally adapted plants grown sustainably and shared with others.”

The 18th Annual Goodwood Garden Symposium lecture and lunch will be held 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 11th, at Goodwood Museum & Garden’s Carriage House. Tickets are $35 for Goodwood & Garden Club members and $40 for non-members and include lunch. Books will be available for purchase.

Online tickets are available on Eventbrite or call JoAnn Bixler at 850-877-4202 ext.228 for information on tickets in person.

Goodwood Tour, Workshop, and Lunch
May 5th | 11:30 AM-3:30 PM | Jubilee Cottage | $60

Get creative with Acrylic Pouring in a demonstration and workshop with Tricia Beall.  Each ‘pour’ is unique and just like Forest Gump’s box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get. You will love this new way of expressing yourself creatively and we dare you to do it once and stop, it is so therapeutic and addictive!

Registration is required, and seating is limited.

Tricia Beall is an artist whose experience includes painting in watercolor, acrylic and oils as well as working with collage and wood. She owned her own gallery which represented Russian Impressionists in Hendersonville, NC and trained and worked in fine art, frame conservation, and restoration. Since her recent discovery of the acrylic pour method of painting, she has turned her entire house into a studio and if you look hard enough you can find her all hours of the day and night buried under plastic cups with paint from the tips of her fingers to the tip of her nose! You can see examples of Tricia’s work in the gift shop and Visitors Center at Goodwood.

As part of Goodwood’s celebration of Earth Day 2020, create your own unique bracelet or necklace by recycling small found objects such as stones, sea glass, buttons, shells, wood, metal, or even game pieces.  Join Joella McGoogan from the Florida Society of Goldsmiths, Northwest Chapter (FGSNW), in being creative by preserving and reusing our Earth’s valuable resources.

There will be a small amount of found objects available, but participants are encouraged to bring their own and extra to share.  We will be using mainly wire wrapping, drilling, and our imagination to attach these objects to create a “new” piece of jewelry.  We will provide the antique brass chain, clasp, jump rings, and wire (sterling silver will be available for an up-charge).  Tools will be provided and are included in the price of the class.
