Wattle Fences & Garden Trellises
Sometimes referred to as hurdles, wattle fences and trellises have been around since the stone age and can be made from easily-harvested and widely-available materials. This one-day workshop will introduce the many uses of wattles, hurdles, and trellises, the materials needed, and how to make a wattle fence and trellis. Students will make a small wattle fence and trellis to take home, and have the skills to make many more. A short field trip into the woods to identify useful materials will be included, so wear appropriate clothing and shoes
You will need the following tools for this class:
- bypass pruning clippers
- large loppers
