Three Arrangements for Demomstration

A group of Taiwanese American retirees in NJ, named "Living Well Club," meet every Wednesday. Each week they invite a speaker to give a lecture, such as "About Medicare," "How money works," "Wildlife of Costa Rica," etc. This Wednesday, I was invited to talk about "Ikebana, Japanese Floral Art." This was my third time sharing my learning experience and using a power point to explain my Ikebana works selected from my blog. At the end, I demonstrated two basic styles (Nageire and Moribana) and one free style. I am so happy to have had this chance to review and practice my Ikebana arrangement. (12/18/2013)
