The Ikebana International Ann Arbor Chapter #183 , in our 47th year.
We meet the third Thursday of each month September - May in room 125 at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
September Workshop – Ichiyo School - Flat Form Ikebana
Last week we welcomed many new members as we held our first meeting of the membership year at Matthaei Botanical Gardens. Ichiyo Instructors Liz Lwara and Terri Voegeli led a workshop on the Basic Flat Form.
The branch and flower materials are placed the same as the slanting form but the arrangement is short in height. The UPRIGHT and SLANTING FORMS focus on the beauty of the branch lines; the FLAT FORM focuses on the width of the arrangement. The FLAT FORM can be created in a single moribana or in two low containers.
August Workshop – Ichiyo School - Two Container Arrangements
Liz and Terre demonstrated using two containers to create a cohesive
arrangement so materials can “communicate” with each other.
This is done through splitting the basic upright or slanting form between the two containers or using freestyle approaches with crossing lines and mass.
With so much in bloom during August, materials from the summer season work together nicely to let your imagination go and have fun.
