Introduction to Sogetsu Ikebana


Saturday, September 21 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am


*Stay tuned for Pricing and Registration*

The Sogetsu School of Ikebana was founded in 1927 by Sofu Teshigahara. It is a floral art form with an emphasis on the beauty of line and the creation of space within a very dimensional arrangement. Importance is given to the angles created by the careful placement of stems and the unique character of the botanical material used. Many western floral designers recognize that a command of Ikebana principles improves their designs. The registration fee for this class includes a Suiban container created by Thomas Arakawa, a local talented Ikebana potter, and also a Kenzan (pin frog) used to hold material in position. This class provides a unique opportunity to get a taste for the beauty and peace found within the study of Ikebana.

Please bring your floral clippers; All other materials are included. This class is suitable for adults and teens.
