Those women worked really hard, and their hands showed their strength. They had a bag strapped on that was full of twine ties. I don't know the measurement...6-8 inches maybe, and they tied the vines to the wire after cutting back a bunch of the runners. I am sure this is not the correct lingo for grape vines, but it was an eye opener for me to see what they do each year.
This is done on handmade paper, and the paint sometimes just blobs on, but makes an interesting texture.
