The ribs of a saguaro cactus are surprisingly lightweight, strong and straight, and each has its own form and character. The saguaro is a protected species in Arizona, and this is a limited, unique opportunity to repurpose ribs of non-living plants, either from the Garden or kindly donated from private land. In this workshop, participants will use a saguaro rib and employ simple woodworking techniques, copper wire, polished stones and leather to transform it into a personal walking stick that is as beautiful to look at as it is to hold. No living saguaro will be used in this workshop. All materials included.
