IKEBANA: the way of flowers
A demonstration and workshop introducing the art of Japanese flower arrangement
Yumiko Kikkawa, a Master III instructor of the Ohara School will be performing three demonstrations and leading the instruction. Participants will learn how to create the Hana-isho Basic Rising Form arrangement.
Ikebana (the Japanese art of flower arrangement) is one of the many traditional arts of Japan and is over 600 years old. The Ohara School was founded during the middle of the Meiji Period (1868-1911) and is comprised of four forms of ikebana: Hana-isho, Moribana, Heika, and Hanamai.
This particular workshop will be introducing the Basic Hana-isho Form, which provides the elementary knowledge and techniques of Hana-isho as well as the fundamentals of Ohara ikebana as a whole. The Basic Hana-isho compositions are simple and encourage the individuality of the arranger.
This is a wonderful introduction to ikebana and a chance to learn something new!
