Colourful start to the year - July workshop

After our summer break, the Chennai Sogetsu Study Group met again on July 11th, at Amethyst, adjacent to the flower shop. It was very convenient to have the flower shop handy, and the ambience was also enjoyable.

We missed Shobhaa and Venkatesh, this month, and hopefully they will be back next time. The theme for this workshop was colour and the members brought it out in different ways.

By Prerana

Prerana contrasted the white of her combination vases, with the colour of the agapanthus and chrysanthemums.

By Padma sensei
For Padma sensei, the red of the vase was highlighted, in a Christmassy colour combination!

By Trishala
Trishala emphasisized the green of her vase, with more use of green material.

By Chitra
The glamourous red of the anthuriums were highlighted by Chitra.

By Seethalakshmi
For Seetha, it was blue and yellow, both the shape of the container and the colours working to produce a pleasing effect.

By Nirmala
The orange of the palm berries matched the orange of the dramatic strelitzias in Nirmala's arrangement, and the long lines provided a dramatic setting.

By Kalpana
The gladioli reflected the clour of the vase, while the chrysanthemums provided a sharp contrast in Kalpana's arrangement.
By Meenu sensei
Meenu used one of the vases of the Amethyst shop, and created this graceful arrangement with pineapples and lilies, which she left behind for the shop to display!

By our guest from the Japanese consulate, Ms Kayoko
We were delighted to have Ms Kayoko come and participate in our workshop, and she used the colourful heliconias to good effect.

By Molly sensei
Molly's green and orange creation was dramatic and well balanced.
By Pushkala
The blue of the container was highlighed by the water and space in Pushkala's linear arrangement.

By Ambika
Ambika attempted to highlight the brown of the vase with the orchids and rust chrysanthemums, and the white streaks on the vase with the large oriental lily.

By Vaishali sensei

Vaishali worked her magic with the lovely lily lines and umbrella plant, highlighting the white of her vase with the trellis-work of lines.

By Dally
Dally's arrangement was a study in pink!

By Ashoka
Ashoka highlighted the colour and shape of his vase
