Sogetsu Ikebana workshop (1)
6/8/2007, 10am-noon, teacher's workshop, Mr. Oki Toshiyuki
"Arrange from behind"
For demonstration, it's important to arrange from behind. There are steps of training in order to acquire the techniques and confidence of arranging from behind. First, study basic and variations with materials which don't have front or back. Second, with materials which have front and back; third, with branches; eventually, arrange in free style.
I did the first variation upright moribana in the workshop.
