Join visiting artist and sculptor Matt Bua in making a small outdoor dwelling inspired by former Wave Hill resident Mark Twain, who loved to entertain guests with tea in an outdoor, treehouse parlor. Add natural decorations and pictures to the dwelling’s interior to create a cozy literary den, and help make a Mark Twain “zine”, or small magazine.
