The Workshop is scheduled to start at 10:30 am. It may be finished around 1:30 pm or before, and then the Annual Meeting starts. The meeting will be closed at 2:00 pm.

I will introduce the following matters at the meeting as well as the matters we discuss usually.

  • New curricula of Ohara school of Ikebana,
  • What are changes in learning at each curriculum level,
