AM – ITALIAN INFLUENCED VERTICAL LAYERED DESIGN – NOREEN DONOVAN 
Requirements:
You will need a tall pottery or glass container approx. 40cms high. Floral foam raised 5cm above rim and covered with wire, plus a small extra piece. Materials:
Choose interesting shaped Linear materials which may be straight, wavy, convex, concave, or indented, with interesting textures e.g. Foxtail fern, Flax, Aspleniums (Bird’s Nest fern), bark, wood, Liatris, Hot Pokers. Approx. 6 – 8 flowers of same size e.g. Dahlias, Sim carnations, Roses, Anthuriums. Interesting foliage for manipulating, and enough to make groupings, e.g. Aspidistra, plain or variegated, large Ivy leaves, Bergenia or Hosta.
PM – COLLAGE – CHERYL WYND 
Collage comes from the French word colle to glue. See page 48 in AFAA Manual. There needs to be lots of texture and non-horticultural material may be used. Horticultural material does not need to predominate.
Requirements:
White canvas frame (any size), from $2 shop, paint-washed in a colour of your choice as the white would be too dominant. Maybe a placemat that could be used whole or cut up. Some bits and pieces e.g. shells, stones, dried or fresh flowers/foliage, fungi, sticks, driftwood, bark, man-made objects. There will be a supply of some extra bits and pieces, plus glue.
Venue: 
Brandon Park Community Centre, 649 Ferntree Gully Road, Glen Waverley. Time: 9.30am for 10.00am start.
