September workshop

The Chennai Sogetsu Group met for their September workshopon 13th September, at the ABK-AOTS Dosokai hall.  Sensei Molly started proceedings with a demonstration on Variation 6, all round style. 

For the first time, we tried an evening meeting to accomodate the working ladies, but this proved inconvenient for several others!
She started off with a moribana interpretation

A low, arrangement suitable for table-tops, with lovely pink carnations contrasting with the blue of the ceramic vase

Then she used a nagiere glass vase, with a vertical cross bar.

Beautiful, all round views.  Jerberas, orchid, everlasting flower, and fern.

There were ten members at the workshop, and some tried their hand at Variation 6, while others looked at working with interesting vases.

Pushkala used local materials for her variation 6 arrangement
