The 8th North American Sogetsu Seminar is now over and I have started posting my photos to my Flickr site. This beautiful large scale arrangment was done by Sogetsu School Iemoto Akane Teshigahara and her staff. I'm sure the hotel would love to have arrangements like this all the time! Whenever I see ikebana on this scale I am really inspired to do some on my own. So maybe this summer I can play with some materals and do at least one. I got a lot of ideas from the three different workshops that I attended. I met so many wonderful and talented people from all over North America and the rest of the world, and it was a great experience to see their ikebana.
