JAPANESE FLORAL ARRANGEMENT, IKEBANA WORKSHOP WITH HARUKO TAKEICHI
Learn the essentials of the Japanese art of flower arrangement, Ikebana, in this beautiful, meditative workshop. Masterful instructor Haruko Takeichi will share her 35 years of experience as she walks the class through the history of both Ikebana and the modern, avant-garde Sogetsu school in which she is trained. Students will learn the different expressions and styles of arrangement while exploring a number of natural materials, from branches and leaves to fruits and flowers. Watch a master at work and get personal feedback as you craft your own arrangements, culminating in a large floral composition that you will bring home to decorate your own living space.
In this workshop we will explore the following themes:
1. Wood / Branch construction
2. Line becomes surface
3. Hanakubari ( arrangement without a kenzan/ frog fixture)
4. Tsubo Vase ( arrangement using a round vase)
The workshop will start with a demonstration for each one of these themes which you will get to practice and express your own personal style.
All supplies are included in the workshop. Light snacks and refreshments will be served and you’ll also receive a 15% off discount at the Poketo shop in the lobby, as well as all future workshops!
This is a great workshop for team-building and for the whole family. Please read our Workshop FAQ for more info
