Forest Path

FOREST FLOWERS

I am convinced, that being in nature will change our designs.

One of my favorite places in Japan is the Lake Nojiri. I spend my summers there, when its too hot in Kanagawa at the ocean side. Situated in Nagano, the region has a climate similar to my native South Germany. The forests are a bliss to walk in, the lake so wonderful to swim in.
This year, I want to give a lesson there! Let's see how nature will influence our designs!

The bouquets

Bouquets with branches are especially difficult to tie, they need to be secured and fixed with special techniques.
It's my pleasure to teach them to you.

The region is so peaceful, and offers many possibilities to spend precious time, therefore I leave hotel arrangements and added activities to the participants, but I will arrange for dinner time spent together for those, who wish to do so.

Also: You are welcome to choose the parts you want to take. It is fine to take the lesson only, I will provide enough material.

Most important to me is your freedom of choice.

The location

The Nojiri Lake is situated in the north of Nagano. From Tokyo, the train takes 2 hours to Nagano City, from there a local train goes to Kurohime in 30 minutes.

To come by car is recommended, but each spot is reachable by taxi also.
