About the Event

Ikebana - The Way of Flowers 

Learn the beautiful art of Japanese Flower arranging taught by Shoko Iwata ranked as first somu teacher. After a demonstration, you will make an arrangement to take home.

Ikebana (or "arranging flowers" or "making flowers alive") is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is also known as Kadō ("way of flowers"). The tradition dates back to the 7th century when floral offerings were made at altars. Later, they were placed in the tokonoma (alcove) of a home. Ikebana reached its first zenith in the 16th century under the influence of Buddhist tea masters and has grown over the centuries, with over 1,000 different schools in Japan and abroad.

Shoko Iwata has exhibited and taught at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and has been President of the Sogetsu NY Chapter https://sogetsuny.wordpress.com/ 

Additional Workshops: May 15th, June 19th, July 10th, September 18th, October 10th, October 23rd.
