Though it’s highly unlikely that we’ll get the chance to weave in snow again, we’ll still have just as much fun in 2019 practicing (or learning new!) techniques for weaving pathway fences at our gardens using willows grown on site!
Obviously, dress for working outdoors with good footwear for rough terrain. Tools provided

This session is an adaptation of our community fence weaving workshops, focused on teaching or further developing core weaving principles of under/over and twining while defining new pathways and fences in the mid-level area of Means of Production under the willow arches. This program will be particularly enjoyed by participants from the Seasonal Lessons from the Land program, but is open to all homeschool families, children aged 8+. Instructor: Sharon Kallis

MOP is uneven terrain, closed toe shoes only please, note no washrooms on site. Rain or shine!
