04-21-2018 Shoka Sanshuike Workshop

Bev Tall

Bev Tall, our sensei for the Shoka Sanshuike workshop on April 21, is also a globe-trotting orchid judge with her own greenhouse at her home.

We were so glad she took a break in her exhaustive travel schedule to lead the workshop students through the intricacies of the modern three-material shoka.

The materials she chose were both beautiful and challenging…lovely blooming plum branches, deep maroon calla lilies and a very beautiful, but also very delicate green plant with very thin stems and a name no one was really sure of.

Needless to say, both Ikenobo beginners and long-timers benefitted from watching Bev critique each arrangement with an eye to sending all students home with well-crafted arrangements that reflected their own feelings and creativity.
