Ikebana International in Western North Carolina will present a demonstration on “The Honorable Twosome: Moribana and Heike,”  on Tuesday, May 29 at 10 am in the auditorium of the Folk Art Center, Milepost 382 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Moribana (low bowl) and Heike (tall vase), designed in variation, may be adapted to hundreds of creative designs for the home. Sibbie Wilson, a second-degree master of the Ohara School, will also include many useful tips making the mechanics of tall case designs easier.

The Ohara School of ikebana emphasizes the landscaped environment with the seasonal use of branches and flowers.

The Asheville Chapter of Ikebana International presents a program on ikebana flower design and/or Japanese culture on the fourth Tuesday of every month, February through October.
