I weave Twig Garden Structures that may be used to provide support for growing plants. Enveloped in green, leafy vines the structures morph into living shelters. Shapes range in size. Circular huts large enough for two chairs offer a quiet spot for a tete a tete. I designed and built a woven tunnel at Coastal Maine Botanical Garden over 30 feet long. Pyramid shaped tuteurs work hard in a garden and ladder like trellis’ create a rustic wedding arbor.
Twig Garden Structures may be built with groups. My workshops have been offered in schools, at fairs and festivals. They provide an opportunity for hands on learning. Weaving, one of our most ancient skills, has been used to provide provide warm clothing, provide protection from exposure to the elements, catch fish and corral livestock.  It is a skill worth experiencing.
