The holiday workshop was led by Ikenobo sensei Linnéa Storm. She focused on free-style Christmas arrangements. Participants each brought a clear glass container. Poinsettia (including candles for singeing the cut ends), babies’ breath, white chrysanthemums, pine branches and ornaments were provided.
Linnéa is a captivating speaker. She had the group spellbound with a fascinating historical perspective on winter holiday decorations, age-old traditions of winter celebration, the solstice and long, cold winter nights.
