Ikebana with Keiko!

Want to learn about the beautiful art of Ikebana? It is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Ikebana is a creative expression that draws emphasis towards shape, line, and form with certain rules governing it. 
The main rule is that all the elements used in construction MUST be organic, whether they are branches, leaves, grasses, or flowers. Keiko Moeller will demonstrate the 5 types of Ikebana at the Kingwood Branch Library on Wednesday, September 23rd at 10:30 am. 
Sign-up is required; each participant needs to bring a flower vase (preferably a wide one), a pair of shears and flowers – minimum 3 different kinds of flowers/green leaves/branches 3-5 stems each.

Completion of the new Kingwood Library will usher in many changes, not the least of which is how FOLK – Friends of the Library-Kingwood – will handle used book sales.
