Staff Report

The Wildling Museum’s first virtual art class will be a workshop on rock wrapping, taught by artist Kathy Badrak, 1:30-3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24 via Zoom.

Participants will learn the basics of wrapping stones with waxed linen to make one-of-a-kind serenity stones. Rock wrapping is an art form rooted in Japanese tradition. Wrapped stones could be used in Japanese gardens to guide visitors along a prescribed route or the correct spiritual path.

Today, there are numerous variations of rock wrapping using different materials. For the Wildling workshop, attendees will learn two methods of rock wrapping to create their own serenity stone.

A materials packet will be available for pick up two days before the workshop. A Zoom link will be shared with all registrants to join the live course and a class recording will be made available to all registrants for one week following the course. All ages are welcome to attend, but the class is probably not suitable for young children.

Class fee is $25, all materials included. Register online at
