Do you teach? Yes
Do you perform? Yes
I have studied withSōgetsu teachers here in the U.S. and travelled to Japan for workshops several times. I am certified for issuing certificates. I am also a judge in the National Garden Clubs, Inc and can explain arrangements using the vocabulary of the principles of design. I have about 50 current students. I run the classes at home and at churches, except Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA which hires me to teach. I do ikebana demonstrations for groups of 15-250. I make 7-9 arrangements explaining theSōgetsu School way of arranging. I do 2 or 3 traditional ikebana and more free style arrangements.
