Ikebana Tips #14: let’s try modifying leaves

Categories: Tags:

Nature produces beautiful materials for us to use, but sometimes we can also take what nature provides and modify it.  In freestyle we are being totally creative, so anything goes and this includes re-shaping or reforming leaves.  And sometimes you can combine leaf modification with wiring to achieve all sorts of creative contortions, for freestyle fun!

Exhibition of Ceramic Art by Maggie Zerafa

Categories: Tags:

I recently had the privilege to create an arrangement in a beautiful vase made by the very talented ceramic artist, Maggie Zerafa.

If you are on our mailing list you’ll have seen my previous mentions and a couple of photos of my arrangements in her vase, and a mention of her exhibition in Edinburgh. If you are living, working or just visiting the Edinburgh area of Scotland, I recommend you go to see Maggie’s exhibition.  On now until 8th April 2017 at:

Birch Tree Gallery,
23A Dundas Street,
