Make Your Own Mounted Elkhorn with Claire Greenhill
Learn about this fabulous fern and make your own mounted Elkhorn trophy in this dynamic hands-on workshop. Our plant guru Claire will guide you through the process of preparing your surface board, attaching and presenting your Elkhorn plant. You will also learn how to care for your new mounted trophy, including when and how to water as well as tips for placement and feeding.
Elkhorns are in fact native to Australia and traditionally grow on tree trunks and absorb nutrients and water through their fronds, making them ideal for a mounting.
These unique plants have had a recent resurgence in popularity; featuring in our favourite interiors magazines and online journals. We love them for their characterful ‘faces’ and wild appearance.
Learn to mount and care for your Elkhorn at Stackwood and you will be rewarded with a vibrant new feature for your home.
All tools and materials will be provided.
Date and time:
Saturday 15th of September, 2:00pm - 4:00pm
