New Year Luncheon

19 January 2014

            Honolulu Chapter 56 celebrated the New Year with a luncheon.  All table centerpieces and arrangements in the accompanying exhibit were to use equisedum, commonly known as horsetail, in honor of this being the Year of the Horse.  After lunch Ms. Tinius provided a brief talk on the origins and development of ikebana and some of its relations to art and religion.  She then demonstrated the two basic Ikenobo forms, Rikka and Shoka, as well as free style.
