Woven Willow Obelisk

  • New York Botanical Garden 2900 Southern Boulevard NY, 10458 United States (map)

February 29th, 2020, 10:00am - 4:00pm

Organized through New York Botanical Garden, more info and registration here. $239 for non-members, $215 for members of NYBG.

A staple of English gardens, a willow obelisk serves as a graceful plant support or a decorative focal point in your garden. Jesica Clark, owner of the Hudson Valley's Willow Vale Farm, will teach you traditional willow weaving techniques, including randing and pairing. You'll have time to experiment before you create an eco-friendly obelisk, which will include an Irish mouth wale base and a Japanese eye knot top. Strong hands are a must!
