The WEB IEMOTO SEMINAR started in 2020. Since then, three streaming videos have showcased the exquisite artistry and technique of Iemoto and the Master Instructors of the Sogetsu HQ.
This Autumn, we will release the “Iemoto Only” streaming video to commemorate her 20th anniversary of the succession. Don’t miss this memorial program and enjoy her exciting and meticulous demonstration to your heart’s content.
Please stay tuned!
