Ikebana Japanese Flower Arranging

In our living environment where more and more artificial and inorganic substances are being used, flowers bring peace of mind to us. Once you have an interaction with flowers, you may come to feel like arranging them on your own to entertain someone. Ikebana can satisfy such a natural urge. In 1927, when everybody believed practicing ikebana meant following established forms, Sofu Teshigahara recognized ikebana as a creative art and founded the Sogetsu School, which has grown to become one of the biggest Ikebana schools in Japan today. Anyone can enjoy Sogetsu Ikebana anytime, anywhere, using any material. Arrangements can be created and placed at your door, your living room or on your kitchen table as well as larger public spaces such as hotel lobbies, banquet rooms, and shop windows. Ikebana adds colour and beauty to this modern world and enriches any space be it Japanese or Western. Please bring $60 for materials payable on the day. The tutor Hiroko will provide equipment for you to use during the workshop.
