Plant materials are 'tamed' by winding and binding techniques to appear in a transformed state in a design.
Winding - "Twisting plant materials or other components around an object or plant material"
Binding - One definition is "The controlled use of threadlike materials to bind stems or forms for decorative and textural effect"
