Winter Holiday Events at Cylburn
Every year Cylburn lines up a collection of Holiday events for you and your family. Holiday highlights include wreath making with boxwood cuttings from our formal garden and a special holiday plant sale in Baltimore City's greenhouses located on Cylburn's grounds.
The Gift of Clay
Give your special someone the opportunity to enjoy a workshop or class with The Gift of Clay, where they will create, rejuvenate, and practice self-expression. You’ll also be giving your friend or family member a gift that keeps on giving. The process of handling, molding and shaping of clay offers therapeutic benefits like releasing daily stress or mental relaxation. So do something wonderful for that special person and give them The Gift of Clay. The Gift of Clay can be redeemed for any class offered during our Summer, Spring, Fall or Winter semesters.
