Ikebana Experience

Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. This traditional and formal art may seem esoteric, but this is not the case. Anyone is capable of creating a fantastic work of art by themselves after acquiring the basic concepts and fundamental skills of this art.

 

Learning ikebana promotes a better understanding of the Japanese view of nature; a crucial step in appreciating the unique aesthetics, emotions and thoughts that merge to create this visual art form. Flower arranging used to be a required "mannerism" for well-educated men, such as samurais or monks.

Since you have travelled to this "strange island" it would be a waste not to experience our genuinely unique culture!

 

Ikebana experience is fully booked : March 29th - April 6th

I've studied and practiced ikebana for 20 years. I started learning this traditional art being influenced by my mother and aunt who are also ikebana masters.
