It was a joy gathering with everyone at the annual Katen 2022. We had a well-attended exhibition with lots of great feedback from participants who enjoyed the beautiful floral artworks.
Forty-nine people exhibited their Ikebana arrangements over the March 19 and 20 weekend. There were several group works and large masterpieces to draw the eye around the room. Arboretum visitors who came to the exhibition enjoyed browsing and many participated in making and taking home a mini-ikebana arrangement.
The demonstration by Ohara Ikebana School of Los Angeles was held on Sunday, March 20, 2022. The room was filled with over 100 people. Thank you Satsuki Palter, Katey Ho, Theresa Lin, and Mayumi Onami for sharing the unique qualities of Ohara Ikebana and for making arrangements that celebrated the beauty of spring.
This year the Country Store was dedicated to our beloved friend, Tiiu Parli Harunk’s memory.
arm hospitality really helped spread our motto, “Friendship through Flowers”
