For our October 22 meeting, we made miniature arrangements under the guidance of our own member, MaryLee Hawse, Ikenobo Professor 2nd Grade.
We used sake cups as our container with guidelines as to height and width of our arrangements. MaryLee brought each of us a nice bunch of greenery and flowers and some amazing anise seeds to use. She encouraged us to use materials from around our houses for our arrangements. Two other members, also Ikenobo Professors Grade 2, helped guide us with suggestions how to improve the designs.
It was a very successful and fun morning and helped us gain confidence and momentum for our next month’s meeting which will be an Art in Bloom exhibition. Our inspiration for the Art in Bloom designs will come from pictures in our own homes.
