*Due to the pandemic, we basically provide

only a private lesson of ikebana and calligraphy.

Your lesson could be a group lesson only when other participants want to join the same date/time lesson as yours.

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!

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.
