Workshop Details

Are you ready to start out the New Year with a Rikka Challenge?  I hope so because I am ready to teach!  You may arrange shofutai or shimputai rikka.  But before you decide you may like to view the videos on each style.

Gathering materials for any kind of rikka can be intimidating.  This step is most important in all ikebana but no more evident than in rikka style. You need more materials and different kinds of materials. THE challenge we have all had this year is to have to select our own materials for ikebana.  One thing I am sure of is that if you meet this challenge regardless of how successful you WILL succeed at increasing your ikebana knowledge. Unlike you, I am not familiar with Arizona materials. Below you will find a list of materials you may be able to find at the grocery store or in my yard that is good for shofutai rikka.  You will have to substitute what is available to you. You can use my list as a guide for the positions of yakueda to keep with the concept of san kasho zukai. For those of you choosing to arrange shimputai rikka, I am sure you are knowledgeable enough to know what you need without my help.
