On Mondays, once every two weeks, I travel to the South-West of Montreal for my Ikebana courses. Since I am blogging again I decided to share some of our "work" here. By "our" I mean Mona's, Caroline's and mine. Mona is the newest student of our group - she just started practicing ikebana a couple of months ago. Caroline is the most experienced one - she is working towards her 3rd diploma and has been doing ikebana for over 5 years. As for me, it's my third year and I am hoping to get my first diploma in October. Our teacher is Josianne - a talented sensei and an amazing person.
Here is a classical arrangement from KORYU SHOTO-KAI school. We used cat-tails this time: 3, 5, and 7.
And this is my modern arrangement from the same day. Aspidistra leaf, small lilies and two other plants, whose names I do not remember.
