FLOWER ARRANGING FOR THE HOME ALTAR

Sunday, September 19

2-4 pm

 

This class will enable you to make a simple, tasteful,  arrangement using Moribana principles

of  Ikebana.  This is a very satisfying pursuit, once confined to male priests.

 

We will make arrangements as if for an altar the size of a carry-on suitcase, so we are all working on the same scale.

 

You’ll need to bring:

-a shallow container or even an empty tuna fish can

-a kenzan, or pin frog, that will fit inside the shallow container.  (You can buy inexpensive one at                        Craft World).

-a cylindrical vase, preferably opaque,  about 5-8 inches tall

-clippers

-FLOWERS OR STEMS that you want to use.  We use 3 stems (or more) for each of the two arrangements.   I no longer have a garden, so bring your flowers/stems  in water.  Sometimes we share plant material.

-a box with crumpled newspaper  so that you can safely transport your creations home

 

Please let me know if you are coming, so I can send you my address.
