Introduction to Ikebana with Kathy Draper

Rowayton Gardeners at the Potting Shed invite you to have fun with flowers on Thursday, October 14th. Lifetime member of the Rowayton Gardeners, Kathy Draper, has achieved the esteemed top degree of Riji, the highest teacher’s certification of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana. She has done numerous exhibits, installations, workshops, and demos in her four decades in the field.
