Invitation to Ikebana: Contemporary
Ikebana is an expression of our respect and appreciation towards nature. We observe life through the arrangement of plants. During each class, participants receive hands-on instruction to put together an arrangement to take home.
This class is an introduction to the Sogetsu School of Ikebana. This will be a hands-on workshop open to all skill levels. The instructor will demonstrate the art form and then the students will proceed to make an arrangement. After creating an arrangement the instructor will do a critique.
Price: $44, $39 member price
Instructor: Midori Allmeyer
Special Instructions: Students are encouraged to bring their own Ikebana container (vase) and a large Kenzan (= Pin-frog, 3.5" diameter or larger) as well as garden clippers (or Ikebana scissors) so that they can take home their finished arrangement. The Kenzan and Ikebana vase can be reused for future arrangements again and again for years. Container, Kenzan, and scissors will be lent during the class for those who don't bring their own, but then they will only bring home their flowers.
Large Pin-frogs (Kenzans) and Ikebana scissors are available to purchase at the Gift Shop of DBG.
