A couple of weeks ago I invited a few people to an evening with ikebana. After an introduction to the principles of ikebana and a brief look at the history behind, it was time for a hands on session trying out the first exercise of the Sogetsu school curriculum - basic upright moribana.
Everyone did the same exercise, still the result came out very personal. I've posted the finished works so that you can compare them. I think they all did a great job with their very first ikebana.
