2023 02 • February Ohara Workshop
At the workshop in February, Mayumi Onami from Ohara School shared the Moribana Landscape style which brought the outdoors inside as realistically as possible. The mood was set on Sunday, February 19, 2023 with background music of birds chirping and a recording of the woods. Onami-sensei shared a brief history of the Ohara school with the participants and thoughtfully explained why certain elements are placed in a particular way. Sometimes they signify the season and how a plant is really growing in nature. I love workshops that expose me to ikebana outside of my school's teaching because I walk away learning something new about their practice.
