Full description
Expand your knowledge about Japanese culture and learn how to do a traditional Ikenobo style flower arrangement in this class. Arrange plants that are removed from the nature and fill them with new beauty and place them in a new environment. You can re-create the shape of the plant it had in nature with branches, leaves, and flowers.  Dive into the history of Ikenobo, which  is the history of ikebana. Ikebana began with Ikenobo and although over 550 years many other schools have branched off from Ikenobo, Ikenobo is said to be the origin of ikebana. Arranging flowers and finding beauty in flowers are linked to a heart that values nature and cares for other people - this is the spirit of Ikenobo Ikebana.

    Aya is an experienced, very friendly Ikebana teacher. The lesson begins with a brief introduction to the topic, followed by a brief introduction to the materials. The participants try to make a flower arrangement themselves. Aya then corrects and explains the background and philosophy. It's fun to learn here and even those who don't usually deal with flowers develop a desire to learn a little more about Ikebana. Everyone can take something away from this course for their own everyday life, even if you don't live in Japan.
