Ikebana Lessons

Last friday I had my 4th Ikebana (Japanese Flower Arranging) lesson and decided I'm going to start photographing all my arrangements. Here are a couple pictures:




My teacher just so happens to be my Grandmother. She's been teaching from her home for many years now and I, being a website/graphic designer, not only realized how much fun it would be, but also how these lessons could serve as weekly design exercises.

really beautiful, Kyle. Love the combo of the forsythia and bird of paradise in your arrangements. You done good...Your other grandmother would be proud of you as well. She taught me a bit about flower arrangements and she especially loved the Japanese style of grace and meaning.

That is excellent. I have recently become interested in ikebana myself.

My first name is also Kyle
