Dan Soman has been a Woodlander since the Wisconsin event began in 2000. He’s taken many different classes, apprenticed with some of the “masters,” and has taught at Woodlanders, at Shake Rag Alley’s Garden Getaway, and at Olbrich Gardens. He’s very handy with tools and materials, but especially likes traditional willow work such as teepee trellises, and he likes working with gourds, also.
