R-3A Kusamono (Accent Plantings)

Sunday Afternoon - ‘A’ Session - 1:30-3:00pm, 1.5 hours
6 participants, $45

 

The art of kusamono has developed throughout history alongside bonsai.  The term kusamono translates literally as 'grass thing'.  The term originally referred to small, potted grasses used as accent plants in bonsai displays. Recently, kusamono has developed into an art form all its own consisting of arrangements of grasses and flowers in unique pots or trays designed to suggest a season or place.  Various styles of kusamono will be described, and you may choose the one you want.  The workshop will be led by Patty Myrick, who has taken part in many kusamono workshops and study groups, and trained under Young Choe, a world class kusamono artist working now at the US National Arboretum.  Patty is uniquely qualified to teach this class featuring her favorite genre within the art of bonsai.  She has also designed the centerpieces for the tables at our Rendezvous banquet Saturday night. Be ready to see just how much fun one can have putting together different combinations of accent plants. All materials provided by Patty, but bring scissors and tweezers.
