Please note: This class is full. We hope you’ll check our schedule to find other programs you’d enjoy, including several more by Susan Perrine.

Learn to create a rustic garden trellis through the time-honored method of using local twigs and branches.  Folk artist Susan Perrine will show you how to weave and fix sturdy maple, birch, ash, beech or birch twigs together to create a unique, beautiful, and practical structure for your garden. Plan to drive home with your one-of-a-kind creation. 

During her time as Expert-in-Residence from June 11-15, Susan will present several workshops and create artistic works utilizing and weaving twigs. In addition to her classes, while at the Gardens Susan and our visitors will weave a twig tunnel in the traditional-arts area of the Children’s Garden.  To help Susan with this project, visit the Gardens between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday, June 14.  To watch her at work, simply come anytime during her residence, except during class times.
