Antoinette Adrouart, a member of Ikebana International, Sogetsu Boston Branch, Ikebana instructor and owner of Ikebana Flower in Nashua, will be giving a demonstration on the art of Japanese Ikebana Sogetsu School flower arranging.  Ikebana is an ancient form of floral arranging deeply rooted in Japanese tradition, in which all sorts of materials are used in addition to fresh plants and flowers, like withered branches, roots, driftwood, iron, stone and cloth.  So this is the perfect time of year to find out about this relatively simple creative activity that encompasses both tradition and contemporary aspects from expert arranger Antoinette.   This demonstration is free and open to the public through the sponsorship of the Mountain Garden Club, Tin Mountain Conservation Center and the Marriott Residence Inn, North Conway.

There will be a sign-up sheet at the demonstration for an IKEBANA WORKSHOP.  If there is enough interest (10-20 persons), it will be held in early May, 2013.  The cost of the workshop is either $35 pp or $25 if you have a container and frog pin.
