A kadomatsu is a traditional Japanese decoration of the New Year placed in pairs in front of homes after Christmas until January 7. This evergreen arrangement, typically made of pine, bamboo and sometimes plum tree sprigs, represents longevity, prosperity and steadfastness. Join ikebana instructor Emiko Suzuki to make this traditional Japanese winter arrangement and ensure your prosperity for the new year. All materials will be supplied. Students are asked to bring pliers, wire cutters, floral clippers or plant scissors and garden gloves for protecting hands.

Emiko Suzuki is a Senior Professor 3rd Grade of the Ikenobo School of Ikebana headquartered in Kyoto, Japan.  She taught ikebana to students of all ages in Japan and US for more than 20 years. Emiko graduated from Western North Carolina University with a Master of Arts in Teaching and Master of Fine Arts. Emiko loves to share her native culture in this area.
