|Artz Festival attracts Ikebana experts|
Don't miss the opportunity to watch Ikebana experts in action at the Wanganui Blooming Artz Festival next weekend.
Mitsue Chubachi and her assistant Hideko Tanabe, from Wanganui's sister city Nagaizumi-cho in Japan, have been invited to the festival by the Wanganui Sister City Association. They will demonstrate the arts of Ikebana (flower arranging, using locally sourced flowers) and the tea ceremony at several sessions during the Blooming Artz Festival. The festival will be held at the Wanganui Racecourse on September 14-16.
Mitsue Chubachi gained the Japan Tea Ceremony Society's qualification as a tea ceremony instructor in 1966 and was admitted as an instructor in flower arrangement by the Ikenobo School of Flower Arrangement in 1970. She has given classes in both arts in Nagaizumi and the city of Numazu, and in 1995 she became a director of the Japan tea ceremony branch office in Numazu.
Hideko Tanabe learned Ikebana from Mitsue Chubachi and was her best pupil. Since then, she has assisted in Ikebana demonstrations and has more than 10 years' experience in the tea ceremony.
They will arrive in Wanganui on Wednesday and will attend a function hosted by the Sister City Association on Thursday. Wanganui and Nagaizumi-cho have been sister cities since 1988 and later this year will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Sister City Friendship Centre at Wanganui East.
The Ikebana and tea ceremony programme for the festival is:
Friday, September 14
Saturday, September 15
The demonstration is a rare opportunity for Wanganui people to watch
real experts in the arts of Ikebana and the tea ceremony. Admission to
the demonstrations is free (there is a door charge for general admittance
to the festival).
