In-person Workshop

Northwest Unitarian Universalist Church

23925 Northwestern Highway, Southfield, MI 

(see map below)

Morning Workshop  10:00 a.m.

Movement with Midollino

taught by Sogetsu instructor Leslie Rosinski

Midollino means wicker, or fibrous reeds in Italian. We will manipulate these reeds into soft organic shapes that we will later add to our containers with flowers and stems to create one-of-a-kind arrangements.

Each person will receive about 20 sticks to work with.  We will use water, rubberbands, and clips to make the desired shapes for our containers. 

As we work with the Midollino sticks, we want to keep our focus on our container shape and size.

Please bring a black container only.

Cost per person for Midollino Sticks: $5.00

Please Bring:


Before the pandemic began, our Detroit Chapter instituted a $5.00 per person per month fee to help offset costs for our venue. We  have restarted this again as we meet in-person. To add to this, we will have a door prize each month, so, as you pay, you will receive a ticket for a chance to win an ikebana related item.

Please bring your own lunch.

Afternoon  Workshop  12:30 p.m.

Adding Midollino to Arrangements

taught by Sogetsu instructor Leslie Rosinski

With our newly-made shapes from the morning workshop, we will each create an arrangement to complement or offset our flowers.  Each arrangement will be unique to the individual and container.
