We were delighted to welcome Mrs. Ruriko Kojima, President of London Ohara England Chapter. This was the first time she has demonstrated for II and her demonstration was much enjoyed and good fun.
The first was the simplest style with pussy willow and tulips. The second showed more of a slanting style, with stems rising upwards to reflect their beauty and freshness
Then we had two moribana arrangements, a style at the heart of the ohara school as this was first originated by the founder over 100 years ago to represent landscape in miniature .
Finally ‘Hanamai’ ie dancing flowers style consisting of two simple adjacent arrangements, using any container style, positioned so that they crossed and could be appreciated from all angles
