Invitation to Ikebana: Contemporary

 

Ikebana is an expression of our respect and appreciation towards nature. We observe life through the arrangement of plants. During each class, participants receive hands-on instruction to put together an arrangement to take home.

This class is an introduction to the Sogetsu School of Ikebana. This will be a hands-on workshop open to all skill levels. The instructor will demonstrate the art form and then the students will proceed to make an arrangement. After creating an arrangement the instructor will do a critique.

Instructor: Midori Allmeyer

 

Special Instructions: Students are encouraged to bring their own Ikebana container (vase) and a large Kenzan (Pin-frog, 3.5" diameter or larger) as well as garden clippers (or Ikebana scissors) so that they can take home their finished arrangement. The Kenzan and Ikebana vase can be reused for future arrangements again and again for years. Container, Kenzan, and scissors will be lent during the class for those who don't bring their own.

Pickles and Chutney

 

In this hands-on cooking class we will focus on pickle and chutney making. We will review canning safety and techniques of boiling water bath canning, but this class is geared to those who have had some experience with waterbath canning. We will pickle some fruit, some vegetables, and also make chutneys we can use to dress up our barbeque’d meats or liven up a cheese plate. Each student will get at least 3 jars-of pickled vegetable, pickled fruit, and chutney.
