Here I am demonstrating the significance of 'in' (negative) and 'yo' (positive) leaf surfaces in ikebana using monstera leaves.
Below Helen arranging salvia.
A general view of the room with six ikebana works.
Ellie Welkamp used purple dendrobium orchids in an upright arrangement
The subject of Christine Denmead's work is the Fatsia Japonica leaves that she teamed with Strelitzia flowers.
I have re-created the work from the demonstration using Mahonia-sp from the Geelong Botanical Gardens.
