Challenge Homework for fun - 'White'

I love travelling but also hate leaving my students for any length of time from lessons and guidance through their ikebana journey. I also suppose ‘once a teacher always a teacher’ and ‘homework’ seems to go hand in hand. Some may say that is rather harsh but believe it or not my students ask for challenges and of course it is totally optional. The other thing I love receiving images of what they have created.

Travelling through Hokkaido early February a white wonderland snow as far as you could see inspired the first challenge. The theme could be nothing but WHITE.

I didn’t set any boundaries so the students could draw from any lesson in the textbooks, colour, use of unconventional materials etc
I was delighted with the results because each arrangement captured the essence of the snow scene throughout Hokkaido.
