Meeting October 14, 2014

We all enjoyed the lovely Ikebana program and demonstration by Suzanne Dillingham of Barnardsville.

Suzanne is a member of the Asheville Ikebana Chapter #74 and the Asheville Ichiyo Chapter.  She has studied in the Ichiyo school for the past nine years and is a Junior Master Instructor.  Prior to moving to North Carolina in 2002, she completed five years of studies in the traditional Ikebana school.

Gardening being her first love, she was happy to share with the Club how we can bridge our creativity in the garden with the Japanese art form of flower arranging known as Ikebana. She discussed the method and philosophy of Ikebana as she demonstrated the process of creating elegant floral arrangements with structure provided by natural objects mostly found around her property. These photos give only a hint of the beauty of this art form.

We will post on this website Suzanne’s classes when she gets them going.

Regular meetings are held at the Weaverville Town Hall Community Room. Our website is now:
