This 3.5 hour program will be a great introduction to the world of Atsushi Taniguchi and his love of flowers. Atsushi will begin the program with a slideshow of his work, presenting through past work his passion for floral design, how he is influenced by nature and the seasons and the romance of French sensibilities.
Following the presentation, Atsushi will demonstrate his love for the spring season though flowers creating a beautiful design for students to recreate and take home. Atsushi will give design tips and feedback for the students to design a signature Atsushi arrangement. Following the design portion of the class, students will be able to take pictures of their arrangement in a stylized, vignette designed by Atsushi to capture their work, enjoy Japanese treats and sake and take time to chat with Atsushi.
With Spring in the air, and armed with buckets of seasonal delights, we will enjoy ‘The Romance of Spring’ with this influential master.
