Bonnie Gale teaches workshops
on living willow installation in the Norwich, NY area--please
inquire for scheduled dates. Each workshop is independent of the
others. Participants will actually have the experience of building
installations in a group setting outdoors. There will be tours
of several existing living installations by Bonnie Gale in the
area including a local willow bed. Students will have some classroom
time followed by discussion and layout of an installation: ground
cover; the three design components; rod selection; planting; weaving;
tying; watering; and maintenance. Students will build a basic
fedge followed by other structures. Students will also have the
opportunity to explore the building of hurdles, pea cages, garden
borders and trellises. There will be a small materials fee for
removable structures taken home.
