Willow Weaving and Form Workshops with Bonnie Gale

Gale- DecemberJoin Bonnie Gale and the Friends of Rogers Center as we have the opportunity to make a Willow Christmas Wreath. This wreath is made from scratch with the weaving of a willow core. The core is then woven from opposite directions to build up the wreath. “Pockets” are created into which embellishments can be pushed so the wreath is fully recyclable for all seasons.
Festive embellishments will be provided.

Please bring pruning shears to class.

Pre-registration is required as well as prepayment of the fee. To register and prepay the fee, please contact Friends of Rogers at 607-674-4733 or PO Box 932, Sherburne, NY 13460

    Do you need assistance on the “Hop into Spring” event? I have run herpetology events at the Center years ago. I have power points on all the New York amphibian and reptile population. All of the New York frog calls are in the powerpoints. Let me know.
