WSURA Live & Learn Workshop:
Join us for a Japanese floral arranging workshop. The participants will be introduced to the Ikenobo School of JIkebana. This school is over 500 years old, and is the foundation for all other Ikebana schools. The beginning session will include work in a basic floral design, relating to the appreciation of flowers and nature, and to the symbolism found in Japanese arranging. Because of the materials and equipment, the class will be limited to fifteen people.
More than simply putting flowers in a container, ikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement as a collection of particolored or multicolored arrangement of blooms, ikebana often emphasizes other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, line and form.
There will a cost not exceeding $20 to cover the cost of materials. Details coming later.
