About the Event
The Holiday Season is here!
The art of ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) always embraces the season.
Give the gift of a unique memory, and enjoy spending quality time together while making mini Japanese flower arrangements this Holiday season.
Miniature ikebana was first introduced by the second head master of Sogetsu school Ikebana, Kasumi Teshigahara. It is composed of several ikebana works which feature and focus on the beauty of certain small parts of plants.
During the workshop, you will be able to carefully observe the different shapes and textures of tiny plant materials including petals, pistils, stamens, berries, leaves, branches and stems, to make new discoveries about their distinctive appearance which you may not have noticed before. Make several of arrangements (five or more) in the same way, and display them on a base plate, a tray, a piece of Japanese Paper, or a table center and bring beauty home with you.
Ping Wei will teach guests the concepts and principles of ikebana, and guide them through the Japanese flower arranging process. The workshop includes all plant materials, 5 small ceramic containers and Garden admission for the day, so that your Holiday festivities can continue after the workshop.
