Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arrangement. In contrast with Western-style arrangements, Ikebana uses very few flowers and is very simple and elegant, allowing the viewer (and the creator) to more deeply appreciate the beauty of each stem or branch.

Taking the time to see the character in the materials and to choose the best way to place the flowers gives one an improved sense of balance.

The Sogetsu School of Ikebana is one of many ‘schools’ of Ikebana in Japan. While the different schools are all based on the same fundamentals, they do differ in various ways.

Sogetsu happens to be one of the newest and most progressive schools of ikebana today.

The classes usually last from 45minutes to 1hour.

A single lesson will give you a taste of what is involved in ikebana and you will learn to make a basic arrangement.

I am able to teach various levels — Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced. Beginners course introduces the student to the basic techniques and styles that are the foundation of many ikebana arrangements.
