At our October chapter meeting, Terre Voegeli, Ichiyo Instructor taught a workshop focused on the 1st Ichiyo Advance form, the Vertical Form. The major motif of this form is a sense of vertical height no matter the shape of the container. Our meeting was held in one of the Matthaei Botanical Garden greenhouses and all agreed that it was a fantastic venue.
We celebrated 45 years of the Ann Arbor Chapter of Ikebana International with a delicious cake and a wonderful demonstration by our very own Chapter president and Sensei Liz Larwa. Liz is an instructor in the Ichiyo School and demonstrated how to use gladiolas in Ikebana arrangements at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
Our instructor, Liz Larwa, from the Ichiyo school, led this outdoor summer chapter meeting creating arrangements utilizing fruits and vegetables. We had great fun with this theme for our last outdoor summer meeting. Next month we will start our regular chapter meetings at Matthaei.
At our chapter meeting today, which was held at the shelter at Island Park, Ichiyo instructor Terre Voegeli presented a water arrangement where the design elements are above and below water. It was a lot of fun and the perfect lesson for a hot summer day
