Ford's Colony Garden Club attended Ikebana Workshop

Members of Fords Colony Garden Club attended a workshop on Ikebana.presented by Debbie Abrams and Laureen Bolstad. They learned the basics for doing a Moribana style arrangement. This included learning about the three main elements of Shin (heaven), Soe (man), and Tai (earth) and how they must be in a specific height ratio to one another and placed in the utsawa (vase) at certain degrees. Then they added the supporting stems (jushi). Each one turned out lovely and unique to its designer.
