The Saga Goryu School of Ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) will present their annual flower show in the small conference room at Orcas Library on Saturday, September 28th - 10:00am to 5:00pm, and Sunday, September 29th -12:00 to 3:00pm. All are welcome!
This year the school will focus on NW native plants. Each ikebana arrangement will feature at least one native plant, along with non-native flowers to create interesting contrasts.
Joan Stamm, the teacher of Saga ikebana is the author of Heaven and Earth are Flowers: Reflections on Ikebana and Buddhism and more recently A Pilgrimage in Japan: the 33 Temples of Kannon (www.JoanDStamm.com). She and her students—Mark Nichols, Joni Vader, Gwen Stamm, and Alexis Terry Bouchard—will create a variety of ikebana arrangements for your viewing pleasure. A digital slide show of ikebana arrangements will also be on view.
Please come and see the show, sign the guestbook, and enjoy the peace and harmony conveyed in Japanese flower arranging.
