And I have been invited to demonstrate Ikenobo Ikebana and run a workshop for members and honoured guests. The Chapter are planning a massive event, as you can imagine from their earlier pre-celebrations. To see more take a look at – I.I. KL website.

I have often given demonstrations and workshops within UK and exhibited in Japan. But this will be the first time demonstrating Ikebana in Malaysia. I am so looking forward to the event and to meeting up with Paulene, I.I. KL’s President, Datin Paulene Tunku Mu’tamir, whom I have met several times before.  And I shall have the opportunity to see one of my first students, Joo, who now teaches in Malaysia.
