Cost: Tuition $210. Member Tuition $170. Materials Fee $144.

In this two-day workshop, students will make a total of two trellises to take home: an English Hoop Trellis and a Pea Cage Trellis. The English Hoop Trellis will be woven on a bench using a jig (or alternatively, in the ground). It is approximately two feet in diameter and involves curving rods over and through in three tiers and secured with a band of weaving at ground level. The Pea Cage Trellis will be secured in the ground in a radius and secured with bands of weaving. It can also be woven on a bench with a jig. The pea cage is approximately five feet tall and useful to support the growing of vines. Fresh willow and other woods will be provided as well as thin willow for weaving. No previous rustic experience necessary. This is a fun and productive class! Students should be prepared to work outside, kneeling on the ground or standing.

NOTE:  Students are required to bring sharp pruning shears, gloves and string or long twist ties. This class will be held outside, so please dress accordingly.
