Mimi Santini-Ritt, a Level 12 Professor of Ikebana, will speak to our club next Wednesday, February 20, 2019. The meeting will be held at the Trinitarian Congregational Church, starting at 1 p.m. Mimi has extensively studied Ikenobo in both the United States and in Japan for over 15 years. She teaches, exhibits and demonstrates the art of Japanese flower arranging throughout the Boston area, as well as in Maine and New Hampshire. She is the past president of the Ikenobo Ikebana Society of Boston. Ikenobo is the most traditional of the schools of Ikebana, with a history extending back 555 years. Though firmly grounded in the past, Ikenobo has evolved with the times and Mimi will demonstate traditional and modern Ikenobo arrangements. When not practicing Ikenobo, Mimi can often be found at the Museum of Fine Arts, where she is a tour guide.
Don’t forget to bring some money to purchase tickets for a drawing to take one of her beautiful arrangements home!!!!.
