Demonstration and Opening Luncheon

Ikebana International Philadelphia Chapter # 71, held its first meeting of this year on 9/24/2015. Mrs. Emiko Suzuki (professor 1st grade) of the Ikenobo school was our speaker. She conducted a morning demonstration and held a workshop in the following day which I didn't attend.
"Emiko is also an instructor in the art of tea ceremony. She opened the Western NC Japanese Culture Center, in Hendersonville, in order to share her love of Japanese culture through Ikebana, tea ceremony and Japanese Language lessons".
I enjoyed her demonstration very much! Here are her demo arrangements:
