Ikebana Workshop

August 16-17, 2014

The Honolulu chapter of Ikenobo hosted Ikenobo Ikebana Professor Komiya for a workshop.  Saturday she covered the basics of the new way of teaching Jiyuka or free style arrangements using a single insertion point.  On Sunday she taught Rikka Shofutai, with nimai ushiro oha or two extra leaves added in the back to round out the arrangement.  Sunday evening we took her out for Chinese food.
