Learn the form of traditional haiku and then explore and write inside the beautiful grounds of The Kampong to test what you've learned. Afterwards, read your brand-new haiku on stage.
A station will be set up to learn the traditional art of Japanese flower arrangement, using tropical foliage from The Kampong itself.
Japanese foods, Tito's Handmade Vodka cocktails and beer from Biscayne Bay Brewing Company will be available to taste and try.
FYI: PARKING is limited at The Kampong and is not included in the ticket price. (It's usually $5-10.)
WORKSHOP LEADER BIOGRAPHY
Kit Pancoast Nagamura has lived in Japan for more than a quarter of a century. A photographer and poet, she shows widely throughout Japan, and her work is currently held in numerous international collections.
In addition to awards for photography and prizes from some of the leading haiku competitions in Japan and the United States, Nagamura writes a long-running column for The Japan Times, and appears regularly on NHK World’s TV programs “Journeys in Japan” and “HAIKU MASTERS.”
The child of two pioneering Florida families—the Pancoasts and the Fairchilds--Nagamura spent her first years at The Kampong, soaking in her great-great grandparents’ paradise of flowers, fragrances, and leaf-filtered light.
