Live Class 'New Year Fruit Arrangement'

>>  12/28/2015

new year fruit arrangement japanese style
The symbols of the arrangement:
lime for bamboo,
apple fans for the fan
pomegranates for Daruma eyes.

In December 2015 I participated in Ikebana exhibition in Yuzhno city. It was a New Year themed floral event with many wonderful ikebana arrangements made in traditional Japanese style. I gave a Live show how to make a fruit arrangement using the traditional colors of new year ikebana Kadomatsu.
Limes symbolize bamboo, pomegranates imitate Daruma eyes and apple carving in a shape of fan means paper red fan usually added to the traditional new year Ikebana arrangements.
Watch the video of my class where I show how to arrange the fruit Ikebana.

Long Fruit Gift Baskets

My new fruit gifts arranged in long wire baskets. Assorted fruits with floral décor look so adorable.

The fruit baskets were designed for a special client of mine, she has inspired me to create 'other'  things.

If you ask me to choose a favorite basket it is the pomegranates and red apples arrangements.

New Year Soap Carving Class - 2016

new year soap gift

In December we have met in a cozy café to carve new year soap gifts.
A carved soap can be a very special present because you design it yourself. You can carve names, numbers, and you can add any images and signs to make your own design.

You don't need a mold, but a knife to create anything you like. So we did it at our evening class together with children and their parents.

Hello, I will be your guide to the castle of  Pumpkin Dracula

Hope you guys had a great Halloween night. Even if you spent that night at home, I hope you did some pumpkin carvings.
I spent the night at the Halloween show in the cinema. Before seeing a horror movie the visitors tried themselves in carving scary faces in fruits. That was a quick class for joy.
I am looking forward to having official photographs of the evil party and monsters at my class :)
