Ikebana Demonstration

Tuesday, October 11, 2011, 7:00 p.m. Ikebana is a highly disciplined art form of Japanese flower arranging where humanity and nature come together with exquisite results. In the late nineteenth century, Unshin Ohara created a new form of Ikebana called Moribana, using wide and shallow containers with more vibrant and colorful flowers and plants. Moribana signals the entrance from the old, traditional Ikebana, to the modern era. THERESA LIN has studied the Ohara school of Ikebana for more than fifteen years with the grand master Reiga Kawamura and received certification as a Third Term Master. Theresa will demonstrate what goes into this amazing art form on Tuesday evening, October 11 at 7:00 p.m. in the Barth Community Room. Don’t miss this opportunity to see how creativity and discipline come together to delight and inspire. Theresa Lin serves as the secretary of the Ohara school Los Angeles chapter, and the Vice president of Ikebana International chapter. She has presented flower arrangements and displays at the Pacific Asian Museum in Pasadena and participated in Katen, the annual flower exhibition in Ohara school. Theresa also teaches at Foundation for Disabled Youth. This demonstration is free and all are welcome.
