In Slavic legend, there is a tale of an old witch…sometimes a wise sage…but mostly a trouble maker. Her name is Baba Yaga and she rides in a flying mortar using her pestle as the rudder.  It is said that she lives in a strange cabin in the middle of the forest…surrounded by a fence made of bones, capped by skulls…an interesting idea...unless you one of the skulls. The house itself is also grimly unusual… said to be perched upon giant chicken legs…sometimes one…sometimes two.

This folktale seems like a great source for a class idea…. we will create a fantastical birdhouse perched on legs…doll legs, rubber chicken legs, or a mere pedestal. As with all of my classes we will also play with found objects and the process of assemblage to create our structure. Then of course there is the painting portion of the class where all the disparate objects magically come together.

But wait that’s not all…. now for a bit of extra credit…as an option…for folks who want to play with a bit of puppetry…I’ll show the class how to add flapping wings to the haggish home. This might come in handy…if your birdhouse doesn’t have a leg to stand on…har, har. I know, bad joke, I couldn’t resist.

Here’s a link to see the flapping wing action -
