Leaf manipulation is an art in itself. Using different techniques, leaves and stems are carefully cut, looped, and twisted into different shapes to form very unique floral designs. This type of sculptural design uses tough, bold, long lasting evergreen leaves.
Anna O'Kelly, President of the Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland, will join us via Zoom. Anna's presentation will focus on how to change the form and appearance of leaves in their natural state, and how to use these shapes in design. To demonstrate some of the leaf manipulation techniques, Anna uses, if available, the leaves of aspidistra, sansevieria and aralia or similar ones.
