Members working on their paper flower.
II teachers working on a large arrangement. This arrangement is similar to the one arranged by Senko Ikenobo at the 18th NCARC. This was the ikebana convention for all II members in the North and Central Americas. Professors from Japan flew over to lead workshops. The D/FW II chapters put on a wonderful convention.
