About the Event

Snag a seed bomb while drawing and painting desert botanicals on wood scraps during this free, collaborative workshop between Dig It Gardens and artist Lora Barnhiser. 


Originally from Ohio, Lora Barnhiser has lived in Phoenix for more than 10 years. She attended Bowling Green State University School of Art before moving to the desert. Her experience teaching art to students of all age ranges, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds helped shape her into the artist she is today. She currently teaches art to young artists in high school during the day. At night, Barnhiser turns into a studio owl, creating things from upcycled, earth-friendly materials (most often rescued wood scraps). Favorite media include watercolor and wood burning (pyrography). Lately, mural creation has entered her world. When not teaching, momming, or creating art, she can often be found outdoors. “I’ve never been one to spend much time in the salon but amongst the birds and trees instead,” she says. 


Dig It Gardens is Phoenix’s premier destination for diverse plant material, unique pottery, and a positive vibe. The company’s team of plant people will help you navigate caring for your living friends in this unique climate. Dig It Gardens offers an exceptional variety of cacti, succulents, indoor plants, trees, shrubs, and edible plant material. Dig It Design is a full-service, in-house landscape design and build studio providing horticultural knowledge in creating the perfect outdoor space.
