The DIY Mounted Staghorn Ferns workshop is taking off. We had a full crew last class, and I was taken back how creative people can be.
Staghorn Fern wall Art. That bottom right one is a demo I made a couple months ago, the rest are just a sample of some of the Stags mounted during the workshop. Lots of reclaimed lumber used to build these babies.
Workshop SF is about to celebrate their first year DIYing like rock stars. I can’t wait for the Bday Party.
Another Staghorn mounted from one of the students. Staghorn Fern is the common name. I have heard these called Elkhorn Ferns too. Basically, they are Platycerium bifurcatum which is the most flexible plant species to use within the Platycerium genus. Hey, they even grow outside here in San Francisco.
Another cool Staghorn mounting.
Oh, MEMO TO MATTI: Remember to bring the good camera next workshop. The iPhone does not take great night shots indoors…LOL.
I think we are going to experiment a little for our next class tonight… should be fun. Workshop SF has yet to post our September line up, but the next DIY Mounted Staghorn Ferns will be Sept 2. Too many pics to post, but we will have some more up on our Facebook shortly.
