Willow Weaving and Form Workshops with Bonnie Gale
Saturday October 11th at 10:00am – 1:00pm
Join Bonnie Gale and Friends of Rogers as we have the opportunity to make two different Hypertufa Troughs for the Garden. Hypertufa, meaning false stone, is a mixture of Portland cement, peat moss and perlite (or sand). It can easily be fashioned (using forms) into outdoor troughs for bird baths and over wintering plants.
Due to the grant funding, the cost per participant per workshop session is only
$18 for members and $20 for non-members of Rogers. We expect the workshops to fill quickly and the sessions are each limited to 20 participants. This is an adult workshop but children grade 6+ are welcome to attend.
Pre-registration is required as well as prepayment of the fee. To register and prepay the fee, please contact Friends of Rogers.
