The next meeting of The Garden Club of Newtown will feature a program on “Ikebana: Art of Flowers,” presented by Pat McNelis. It will be offered on Tuesday, March 28, at 1 pm, at C.H. Booth Library.
This program was originally planned for January, but was rescheduled due to snow.
Ms McNelis is certified master instructor from the Ichiyo School of Ikebana. Using minimal materials, she creates dramatically beautiful arrangements showing the spiritual connection to nature through branches and flowers.
Ikebana integrates natural materials with shape, line, space, rhythm, and order, revealing a Japanese respect for beauty and the natural world. In her presentation, Ms McNelis will discuss the history and principles of Japanese floral design as applied to Western spaces.
This informative program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required, although donations are appreciated.
The program will be held in the Olga Knoepke Meeting Room of C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street,
