I love hiking, travel, photography, art, and looking for peaceful places in a busy cityscape. I'm also dabbling in some travel writing - https://tinamaleela.home.blog

Create an elegant conversation starter
With some expert guidance, you can create a unique living sculpture to decorate your home or add to the garden. Melissa Conley of MJC Botanicals runs botanical sculpture workshops as part of Mappins Nursery and Aquarium's creative series.

In the two-hour workshop, participants select a piece of driftwood or timber branch onto which particular plants can be attached and trained to grow. Melissa discusses how to select feature and companion plants and how these are bound onto the timber. With a bit of creativity and skill, each participant will complete an elegant living sculpture that can be a focal point in a living room or entertainment area.
