Rinkei Nagamine: Master of Japanese flower arrangement in Ryusei school
“I have been teaching Ikebana for 50 years. I believe that any flower arranged in a vase is not only beautiful but also shows the charm of the person who made the piece. I am looking forward to meeting creative people with whom I will share my knowledge, skills and passion in these two exciting workshops.”
