Obi Tying Demonstration

20 May 2017

Since obi were the theme for this year's ikebana exhibit, the chapter asked Shisho Kikuta to demonstrate how to tie an obi. Kikuta-sensei then invited up to 10 people to come try it.

Yukata and obi laid out before the demonstration

Centerpieces to be given out at the end

And tie your own obi

Several volunteers give it a try

Helping each other

Is this how we do it?
