Course Description: Basic/Intermediate Ikebana: Traditional Japanese Art of Flower Arranging

Create unique and beautiful Japanese Ikebana floral arrangements using techniques established over centuries. Historical, cultural, and spiritual aspects of the practice accompany hands-on learning. After each meeting, students may take their arrangements home. Locally sourced floral materials will be provided and are included in the price of the class. Additional required supplies (vase, kenzan, shears, and textbook) will be discussed at the first class meeting and can be purchased from the instructor or elsewhere. These items are used for each class, and can be used in future classes. Students may take the course for personal enrichment or to earn Sogetsu school certification toward a teacher's diploma. Perfect for beginners and those already familiar with Ikebana techniques.
