100 Ways with Aspidistra Leaves

Written by Paulina Rosa


Hiroko Prado our Director of Sogetsu Sydney/NSW conducted this month workshop focusing on the versatility of Aspidistra leaves for both traditional and modern Ikebana arrangements. Aspidistra leaves are readily available throughout the year, making them excellent material for our Ikebana practice.

During the meeting, she demonstrated various ways to manipulate and utilize Aspidistra leaves in Ikebana arrangements. Some other members also shared their techniques in addition to what had been shown as there are 100 ways of using these versatile leaves. And we certainly learnt more ways of using Aspidistra, thanks to Hiroko for organizing and demonstrating.
