"From creating spirals made of individual fern leaves, to sculpting leaf creatures- playfully designed with various leaves and tendrils of vines- to making "skirts" for trees with leaves arranged artfully around its base, creating foraged art becomes a creative adventure in which your only limitation is your imagination." * Spirituality Health *
