Shoka Betsuden Photos

In this lesson, we created two different shoka betsuden arrangements. Mae Zoe, which is moving the soe to the front of the arrangement. This design is used when the arrangement is placed near a wall or in a niche where the soe would be impeded by the wall. The second arrangement was Hidari Tai. This is utilized on the rare occasion when a guest would be seated and not be able to clearly see the most beautiful part of the arrangement, the tai. Hence, the tai is repositioned so it can be clearly seen from the guests perspective. In both cases a “za” (like a place holder) is placed where the traditional soe or tai would normally be.
