While creating Ikebana designs, the Hana Design artist provides poetry, historical perspective on Ikebana’s evolution, and philosophical insights into the heart of the art form.
Classes begin with reflections upon Ikebana’s history and philosophy, from its ancient Shinto origins, evolving into a Buddhist monastic tradition, medieval Samurai discipline, and modern/abstract art form. Instruction is given in hands-on design and technique.
Throw a flower party! We bring flowers and foliage, poetry, tools and containers.
Learning basic principles of design and technique, your guests create their own Ikebana design which is theirs to take home and enjoy.
