The session will include the historical and philosophical background of ikebana; demonstration of several ikebana styles, and hands-on experience. Participants will learn the principles; acquire an appreciation for this unique art form; develop basic skills; and create a take-home arrangement. Although studying ikebana is generally considered a lifelong endeavor, this workshop is designed to introduce concepts and skills that can be incorporated in Western style arrangements.
Participation is limited to 10 individuals, so please ensure that you complete our workshop registration form early. (Members of GWZS may register here). Also, please bring a pair of garden shears to the workshop. Other materials will be provided.
