Teacher's workshop 11/12/2011
Teacher's workshop at Sogetsu Headquarter
What did he say: We are used to arranging flowers in the order of shin, soe and hikae. Try it in a different way, for example, arranging hikae first. Maybe you'll find out that shin and soe (sometimes) are not necessary after all. You may feel uncomfortable at first, but worth trying.
After his lecture, I cut shin and soe in my arrangement and placed them back into container as jushi. The overall view of my arrangement became tighter, or in a more unified way.
