By signing up for this workshop, You are granting permission to Ikebana Arizona Chapter, its affiliates, successors, and assignees to use your photograph(s) for marketing and promotional purposes. This may include but is not limited to use in print materials, online advertising, social media, and other marketing channels.
For our next Zoom workshop you may choose to arrange rikka, shoka, or freestyle. Whichever style you arrange, think about this as an opportunity to introduce someone to ikebana in general and Ikenobo ikebana in particular. During your discussion of your work in the workshop include the following:
A description of the primary focus of the work. (Is it expressing the basic nature of the material, its shussho, or perhaps the contrast of two materials, or something else?)
An explanation of what is most important in your work. (Is it the use of contrast, of color, of line, or the relationships among
materials, or some combination of elements?
A discussion of an aspect of Japanese culture revealed in the work. (What can one learn or deduce about Japanese culture or aesthetics by viewing your work?)
Finally, point out how your arrangement differs from one you might buy from a florist?
I am asking that you think about your arrangement in this broader sense, that you see it as a reflection of Japanese culture, and that you consider how you will share your thinking with the rest of us.
Enjoy the process!
