The Chapter AGM was enlivened by the demonstration by Yukako Braun, of the ikenobo school, assisted by Qui Nguyen.
Yukako had prepared a series of elegant, small arrangements and showed us some helpful techniques for working on this scale. A miniature work should be no larger than 20cm x 15cm x 15 xcm, and use only a few different materials, emphasising the natural beauty and simple elegance of each.
The resulting array of work, including that of several new members, was exciting. Yukako lent her experienced eye in suggesting a few amendments at the end. This was definitely an occasion when 'less is more' came into its own.
