Creating Lasting Holiday Decorations
November 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Learn the essentials of Della Robbia Design, using the bounty of the fields, at a
Belfast Garden Club talk on Tuesday November 13 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Belfast Free
Library. Presenter Lynne Holland, who coordinates Master Gardener Volunteers in two
counties for University of Maine Cooperative Extension, will present on this decorating
style that dates back to the 15 th century. Its name derives from Luca Della Robbia, a
family of sculptors known for terra cotta work in which religious figures were surrounded
by fruits, vegetables and leaves. Holland will show holiday arrangements made in this
design style that can last up to a month.
Holland has extensive knowledge of ornamental horticulture, with experience in mass-
market floral operations, purchasing and sales.
