I teach ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging at Powell Gardens. I am classically trained 5th level instructor of the Ohara School of Ikebana. My workshops focus on the basics forms and elements of beginner level flower arrangements. I also teach the history and theory behind the practices of Japanese flower arranging.
In the spring, I teach Pysanky egg dying, a traditional Ukrainian technique at the Warrensburg Community Center. In this workshop I teach the basics of applying wax and building up a color palette. The student bring their own artistic influences and styles to the design. We work with raw chicken eggs and candle flame so parents must use digression with younger participants.
