The last two weekends we worked on our first video. It is a video to make a simple ikebana arrangement. Please let us know what you think.
If you think it is interesting we might make some more.
Hereby the timelapse video of the Christmas decoration, we posted in the previous post.
In a previous video you could see the preparation of our ikebana art for the Sogetsu exhibtion in Zoetermeer last weekend. This is the final result.
Ilse Beunen and Gerda Matthees made an arrangement for the Sogetsu Ikebana Exhibition in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands.

Jetse Floralia 2014
The Sint Pieters Church of Jette nearby Brussels is a gothic church which needs some repairs and restauration, but it is a beautiful and very light church. For several years in a row Pastor Dirk succeeds in getting together a bunch of volunteers and florists for the Jetse Floralia. By putting the church in flowers he reaches a lot of people who otherwise would never enter a church.
Just like last year Ilse Beunen together with her students Monique Bogaerts and Tine Van Tendeloo created ikebana installations around the organ and the statue of Sint-Pieter.
The organ has historical and artistic value, it was built in 1898 by the famous company "Van Bever" and has about 1800 pipes. During previous editions of the Jetse floralia the famous organist, Stijn Hanssens, complained that everybody forgot about the organ. This is the thirth year an installation is made around the organ. Let us know what you think.
