In our busy world, the Japanese art of ikebana offers a moment of calm. Flower arrangement is an opportunity to practice mindfulness, connect with the natural world, and express your creativity. The Sogetsu school of ikebana emphasizes adaptability and self-expression, designed to be practiced by anyone, anywhere in the world. In this four-session course, you'll learn the fundamentals of Sogetsu-style ikebana, including how to select plant materials, basic techniques to create beautiful arrangements, and the philosophy behind the practice.
Lesson 1 (Tues., May 4, 6:30 – 7:30 pm EDT) introduces ikebana as a mindful approach to nature. Students will learn fundamental principles such as proportions, placement and focal point through the creation of a basic upright arrangement.
Lesson 2 (Tues., May 11, 6:30 – 7:30 pm EDT) explores how to make a slanted arrangement. Students will learn about balance and counterweight, the use of water, and positioning materials in a kenzan.
Lesson 3 (Tues., May 18, 6:30 – 7:30 pm EDT) focuses on an upright arrangement variation. Students will learn how to bend and shape materials and the importance of ma, or empty space.
Lesson 4 (Tues., May 25, 6:30 – 7:30 pm EDT) introduces an extended composition variation. Students will learn how to arrange a centerpiece ikebana style that can be appreciated from 180 degrees.
