Today we welcomed to our studio about 20+ students and two teachers from Prince Andrew High School. They came to learn a little bit more about ikebana. They were treated to a live demonstration of ikebana. Thank you for asking many questions.
Many thanks to Mrs. Shannon Patterson for bringing the students. We are very grateful for her efforts in giving the young people an opportunity to be exposed to other forms of art like ikebana. This is our second time to receive a visit from Prince Andrew High students. We hope to see the next batch in 2012. We love the youthful energy and enthusiasm that they bring!
Sorry it was a little crowded but we hope you found it interesting!
Here are the two arrangement created today: basic upright moribana (right) and free-style (left)...a play with mass and lines...plus, did you notice that the roses were installed just so...to make them peek out from behind the weeds?
