Welcome back. It was great to see almost everyone out for this lesson. We are sad that Victoria’s work commitments will take her in a new direction that does not allow time for classes. We wish her well.
This week we practised Shoka with one material, isshuike, either liatris or Anastasia disbud chrysanthemums. Isshuike allows us to observe the natural character and growth of a single plant variety. In isshuike the arranger expresses either the inherent beauty in the material, or an impression of the inherent beauty of a particular material.
Next class, March 19, we will continue with shoka, probably sanshuike, depending on the material available. Class information: type of container & equipment needed, locations, times etc. are always posted on the Home page.
