At the final meeting for 2016 our guest speaker was from the charity Cottage by the Sea which supports children who are disadvantaged. This is a charity that the Melbourne chapter has supported for the last several years.
The demonstration was given by Lee Johnstone, from the Sogetsu School, who created a Christmas Ikebana.
She used a spray of red calistemon viminalis, from her own garden, a dried branch lightly sprayed gold and some green mizukiki.
Other members also made Christmas arrangements which are shown below.
