How to secure branches
First, fix branches by tying them with wire, the basic idea is to fix them together at two points. When tying the 4 corners,the point of contact is to be secured tightly (see the picture above). Keep in mind that the wire knot is visible, so use colored wire that suits the materials so that it's not too obvious.

I used this new technique we learned today and arranged it into a tall vase design. In future lessons, it will be very helpful to use this technique, like in a design without Kenzan in the Moribana style or a design that does not use a container, using big branches to support each other. Very useful!
