Shoka Nishuike

We continued our review of shoka today at the JDIC with a shoka nishuike using vine maple and either chrysanthemum or sunflower. Just a reminder that our next classes at this location resume in October and on Wednesdays. Please check the calendar for dates and topics.

Welcome Back to the JDIC Class

We started the Fall season with shoka isshuike using larkspur and one sunflower arrangement. Thanks for bringing and sharing the sunflowers, Kathy.

Just a reminder the next class at this location is next week and then the centre closes until October. Please, always check the calendar and let us know as soon as possible if you plan to attend or not. We want to make sure we have enough material for everyone.

May 17-June 25

Summer rain is good for the garden and a perfect time to catch up on the remainder of the Spring season photos. The highlight of this time of year, of course, is the visiting professor workshops.

Here are the photos leading up to that event and the one class after. Be sure to check the calendar for the Fall season dates at both locations. Note that the daytime classes at the Jewish Seniors’ Centre start in late August, take a break for most of September for the high holidays, and move to Wednesdays starting in October. We hope this won’t inconvenience you and the upside is we will have better parking available as well as continued use of the larger room.

Next Event: Exhibition & Sale at the EJCA Summer Festival, July 14, 2-8 pm. Tell your friends!

A warm welcome back to our returning students and a hearty welcome to our newcomers. Classes have started at both locations with either a review or introduction, depending on the group, to shoka shofutai.

Please check the calendar on the home page for upcoming sessions and topics. Remember, it is important that you confirm your attendance in advance of each class so that we will have appropriate amounts of material for everyone.

Be sure to mark your calendar now for the visiting professor workshops June 20-21. You won’t want to miss out.
