Do you like flowers? Ikebana, Japanese flower arrangement, is a traditional art form that has been practiced for over 500 years. You will learn a brief history of Ikebana and practice arranging flowers. The course will also include how to select flowers, find the beauty of each branch, leaf or flower and arrange them, using lines, shapes, spaces, and balance. The effects of practicing Ikebana are similar to meditation. This creates a calm mind, clearer perception, and a deeper appreciation of nature.

You are requested to bring flower shears, a vase (shallow and wide) and a flower frog (large metal base with nails to hold the
flowers firmly in vase). These tools will also be available for purchase. The instructor will prepare the flowers for the first class (around $8.00), but starting the second class, please bring your own flowers.
