Japanese Flower Arranging 101

Ages 18+


Tuesday’s  | 10:00am-Noon | November 28 – January 16

This is an introductory course in Ikebana which teaches how to arrange floral materials with an Asian flair. Ikebana is more than putting flowers in a vase. It is a moving meditation and a minimalistic art form that respects empty spaces and does not try to fill every space of the container with flowers. You will learn about the differences between Ikebana and western style arrangements, how to select containers, vases, and floral materials, how to use a pin holder (kenzan) to hold the floral materials in place, tips to design in low flat containers and tall vases, create a centerpiece, and learn how to incorporate fruit, vegetables into your arrangements.  In partnership with Jewish Family & Children’s Service.
