Japan Fest Atlanta 2018!
There was a terrific Ikebana exhibit by the Ichiyo School at the Japan Fest Atlanta 2018 held Sep 15-16, 2018 at the Infinite Energy Center. The arrangements are wonderful…..especially so because they’re all done by students – not masters of the technique. Check them out here!
