Rules

Rules are used to guide you in the creative process. Rules should not be used against your creativity. We need to learn rules, so we can arrange flowers in ikebana way. But our creativity cannot be restricted by rules.

Upcoming Ikebana Demonstration in Colorado Springs

I am honored to be invited to present an ikebana demonstration at Ikebana International Colorado Springs chapter in September. It should be educational and have a clear theme, not just 10 or 12 variety of arrangements. After carefully thinking and planning, the theme started to settle in. The original works which will be presented start to form sketches in my brain. I don't know the materials yet, which have to be waited until I get to Colorado Springs a day before. Doesn't matter. I'm looking forward to the demonstration. Theme: Ikebana, Music to Your Eyes Sub-title: --Motif, Rhythm, and Movements
