The Nebraska Nursery and Landscape Association is offering two all-day workshops on Monday, January 23, 2017; one for design and one for hardscape. Attendees can look forward to a day that will provide a rich learning experience and networking opportunity.
Planting Design Workshop – Lisa Orgler
This workshop will explore the beauty of arranging plant materials in your garden beds. Topics will include the elements of planting design including an in-depth look at form, texture and color; how to use these elements to compose a planting design, traditional and contemporary planting models, plus some basic graphics of plant symbols and drawing in elevation, so you can communicate your ideas to others. Though not required, participants are welcome to bring along their favorite plant books or catalogues, plus a laptop or iPad. This is a hands-on workshop, so please come prepared to learn, draw, design and have fun.
Award-winning designer, artist and educator, Lisa Orgler is the creator of the website, Paper Garden Workshop, a spirited place to learn garden design. Lisa uses her illustration skills to teach the topics she adores – garden design and landscape graphics. She does this full time in the horticulture department at Iowa State University, plus part-time on her website. To top it off, Lisa also holds degrees in landscape architecture and is registered in the state of Iowa.
