Ikebana, the ancient Japanese art of flower arranging has been practiced for more than 600 years. Practitioners use flowers, branches, and leaves to create living pieces of art that show the unique beauty and character of each stem.
Ikebana is different from Western floral arrangements in its use of empty space and asymmetrical forms.
The practice of Ikebana can also be a meditative process, as time spent in communication with the materials provides a respite from today’s stressful and busy lives. It also brings a bit of nature indoors, helping to calm the soul and adding beauty to the spaces in which we live.
Watch experienced florist and Ikebana practitioner Kathy Goldsmith demonstrate this beautiful art form and gain the confidence to try it for yourself.
Refreshments will be available. Places are limited and bookings are essential.
