#var:page_name# cover

This workshop will include an introduction to the history of ikebana - the art of Japanese flower arranging and demonstration of basic cutting and arrangement techniques focusing on Moribana* style. Participants will then work to create their own arrangements - a perfect gift for Mom!

This program will be led by Ikebana Master Junko Miura.

*Moribana Style - “Piled up Flowers”

The Moribana style of ikebana was introduced by Ohara around 1890 after Japan was became open to western influence as a result of the 1968 Meji Restoration. This style often uses a Kenzan (a holder with many sharp points) in a shallow, wide mouthed container called Suiban. Tree branches and flowers are architecturally arranged and three main branches are always used.
