(see map below)

Morning Workshop  10:00 a.m.

Vertical Composition 3-1

Instructor: Leslie Rosinski

In this Sogetsu School Lesson, we will be thinking about the vertical line.  Everything begins with looking at the materials carefully.  We want to be conscious of the beauty of the natural lines which the plants originally have, and their power which reaches upwards. We will create our arrangements in low, moribana containers, which will help ‘cement’ our piece and feel the flow vertically.


Materials Needed:


Supplies to Bring:





Note to All: $5.00 per person per month fee to help offset costs for our venue. 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 a bag lunch

Afternoon Workshop 12:30 p.m.

Pressed Flowers onto Glass

Instructor: Leslie Rosinski

Let’s try our hand at applying pressed flowers onto glass.  We will have a variety of dried pressed flowers to select from. If you have any of your own you would like to bring, please do!

We will use a simple technique using Mod Podge and a brush.  That’s it! Use your ikebana skills to decide how to place the flowers and stems onto your jar.

This is a fun, flower-related craft that will have you marveling at the beautiful tiny details of blooms.  It might even get you excited to try pressing your own flowers.
