Waialae Country Club

Honolulu Chapter 56 welcomed the Year of the Dragon with a sumptuous buffet lunch and informative lecture on Asian Textiles from the Academy of Arts by Curator, Sara Oka. In keeping with the theme of textile design, nine members created ikebana arrangements that incorporated textiles, while spring floral centerpieces graced each table. After a brief business meeting, members and their guests enjoyed the salads, entrees and desserts at the buffet. Ms Oka then did a slide show/lecture showing the treasures of textile art that belong to the academy. Examples ranged from intricate Katagami paper stencils, to Shibori to Bingata. A truly amazing collection.
