Teacher`s workshop at Sogetsu Kaikan
The workshops and iemoto classes at Sogetsu Kaikan are different than any classes I took before. We have to choose our own materials and containers, based on the theme of the class or workshop. In this case, you are to express the arrangement. It`s difficult, but rewarding.
The first is Christmas theme. Of course, I choose red, white, and green. I used the orange/red glass container to match the red berries.
The second is using the dry materials. I don`t know the name of the dry seed pods. We have in Arizona, but I never used before. I also chose to use gloriosa, and used a metal container.
The third is using special material. I chose vine and a kind of pod material (sorry, don`t know the name).
