Learn ikebana, the Japanese art of floral arrangement. A centuries-old art form, ikebana calms the spirit, focuses the mind, and teaches the eye to identify the beauty in the myriad details of the natural world. In this workshop, participants will create arrangements using natural dry branches and life-like artificial flowers made in Japan. 

All skill levels are welcome! Enrollment fee includes all flowers and structural materials. NOTE: This class is not required in order to take "Ikebana Everlasting #2."

Participants, please bring the following materials to class:

  • Ikebana scissors or garden scissors
  • A plastic bowl of 5”-10” diameter (such as a small salad bowl or Tupperware container) to cut flower stems.
  • A camera
