For the last Family Saturday of 2017, we are welcoming back Michael Dylan Welch of Haiku Northwest for a haiku workshop.
Haiku is a traditional form of poetry from Japan. In English, they are typically written in three lines with no titles and include an objective description that suggests a season.
“Haiku are ordinary and everyday, focusing on simple observations rather than presenting philosophical judgements… Write down impressions and observations, and be aware of the feelings of wonder and curiosity you feel. See if you might turn some of these haiku seeds into poems.” Says Welch.
Join us on Saturday November 4, 11am-1pm as Welch brings us into the world of Haiku. Be ready to focus on your five senses and stroll through the Seattle Japanese Garden for inspiration for your poetic expression!

The Tateuchi Community Room will be open to visitors to see a stunning photography exhibit curated by Vashon Island-based photographer Ray Pfortner.
November hours are Tuesday to Sunday 10am -4pm.
