How it works

You’ll work step by step to construct the intricate three dimensional shape by stringing on tubes, wrapping wire, and finally attaching the top hanger. Given new life with modern brass tubing, this 4” tall geometric piece of art can certainly be enjoyed year round! Your kit will also include an air plant to give a pop of color to your finished mobile. Don’t worry- we’ll discuss proper plant care at the end of class! These unique and low maintenance plants don’t require soil to thrive, so it’ll find a happy home hanging in your himmeli.
