Branches of Bromeliads

21 October 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

A creative workshop with Sascha Andrusiak.

Sascha just loves being creative with plants. When you walk into her greenhouse at Burnley, it is “alive” with things growing – carnivorous plants, cacti, bromeliads, orchids and much more. She makes living sculptures.

In this new workshop Sascha will guide you through how to mount bromeliads and little native orchids on a lichen-encrusted branch. These epiphytic plants are just the thing to make to give away as Christmas present or to keep and hang in a bathroom or sheltered spot outside. And they won’t die if you are away for a few days!

About Sascha:
Sascha is one of the driving forces at the Burnley Nursery (University of Melbourne, Burnley Campus).
She is responsible for the lovely living art around the Campus. You’ve almost certainly seen her around.

Cost:  $60 (members) $75 (non members) (includes all equipment, lichen branch, 3 epiphytic plants (incl. bromeliads and a native orchid) & morning tea). Additional plants may be purchased.
