Pavilion & Grounds
$150 members / $175 non-members
Reservations open March 18 at 8am

This two-day hands-on experience teaches participants to design and build a fence panel using traditional Japanese materials and techniques. Necessary tools, supplies, and printed material are provided, however participants are encouraged to purchase and use additional tools provided in the supplementary set available at the Garden Gift Store or online.
Garden Curator Sadafumi Uchiyama presents this workshop with staff gardeners. The process begins with a walk around the Garden and a review of the use and placement of bamboo fences. There will be a discussion on types and styles as well as a review of the history and evolution of Japanese bamboo fences. Day one includes lectures and demonstrations, with hands-on tool practice and knot-tying sessions. On day two, participants apply their learned skills to build a Japanese bamboo fence and will also receive a brief demonstration of fence repair and refurbishing. The workshop format allows for open Q & A throughout both days. Participants are asked to provide their own lunch.
