Ikebana at The Vancouver Art Gallery

A member of the Vancouver Ikebana Association was approached by the Vancouver Art Gallery to have some ikebana demonstrations for the Family Fuse weekend in early December. Unfortunately, the snowy weather caused the Saturday demonstrations to be cancelled, but I was scheduled for Sunday morning, so we were a “go”. Our Sangetsu
demonstration was presented using the five guidelines of our school, using Christmassy material. One arrangement using red dogwood branches, white carnations and holly was made in a red tin container and was given away at the end of the demonstration. The audience was not large, but were very appreciative.
