Willow Woodland Ornaments

August 13 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT


CLASS CANCELLED BY REQUEST OF THE INSTRUCTOR – Get a head start on the holidays. Instructor Poppy Hatinger will teach you how to create ornaments from U. P. grown and harvested willow branches. Learn two kinds of trees, a couple of kinds of stars, and more if time allows.  Expect to make at least 4 ornaments depending on your skill. Ages 12 through adult are welcome. No prior experience is necessary. Bring sharp, by-pass handheld pruners, an old towel and scissors. Please bring a lunch. The registration deadline is FIRM because willow needs to soak for 14 days before you can use it.

A minimum of 5 students need to be registered by July 29 in order to hold the class. Maximum of 10 students.  To register for this class, click “Sign Up Online” below or call 906-884-7663. For information about refunds, click on the Refund Policy link at the bottom of the Folk School page.

Directions: Follow M-107 west from Silver City to Union Bay Campground (turn right), take first gravel road to right – you are there! We are in the old carpenter’s shop, the first building on your right.
