Ikebana might not be a word that you recognise, but you’ve probably seen these gorgeously minimalist flower arrangements before. And chances are if you’ve seen an Ikebana arrangement, you didn’t forget it. An ancient Japanese tradition, Ikebana is an art form that draws on simplicity, balance, metaphor, and the natural world to create truly stunning pieces of art. At Ikebana classes in Sydney, you can learn from the pros about this very special tradition and you’ll get a chance to make your own Ikebana arrangements. While the arrangement itself isn’t permanent, you might just find that an Ikebana class will introduce to your next long-lasting hobby.
In-person classes are permitted in NSW, under the state government's guidelines

Japanese flower arranging is a tranquil practice in which you will learn how to use very few pieces of delicate flowers, sticks, and other floral garnishes with intention and precision to create a full, balanced arrangement. The idea is that with a carefully placed and bound floral piece, you can achieve a truly beautiful work of art that celebrates simplicity and elegance. You can often see Ikebanas with floral pieces veering off in different directions in seeming defiance of gravity. It’s a feat that you can learn how to do by taking some of the best Ikebana classes in Sydney. ClassBento has found the best Ikebana instructors in Sydney so that you can start learning this amazing artform.
With Ikebana classes scheduled throughout the week and throughout the city, you can easily find one of these Sydney workshops that will best fit into your busy lifestyle. Japanese flower arranging classes cater both to beginners and those with more experience so that everyone can enjoy their Ikebana classes. In each class, you’ll have a chance to learn about the importance of the Ikebana vase and how to carefully arrange the Ikebana flowers.
Ikebana has been practiced for generations, and it’s one of the most calming things to do in Sydney. Get a group of your closest friends together for the next time you’re looking for relaxing things to do in Sydney at night or give these classes as experience gifts in Sydney to your loved ones. You’ll even learn about the importance of the Ikebana vase and how to pick out the perfect Ikebana flowers. Ikebana workshops also make great team bonding activities when the team can use a little tranquillity.
Ikebana classes run like a combination of art class and flower arranging class. Your passionate Ikebana instructor will tell you about the history of Ikebana as well as some helpful pointers to get the creative juices flowing. Then, you’ll have the space to design and create your own Ikebana flower arrangement that you can take home with you. Once you’ve gotten a taste for this traditional Japanese art, you’ll want to keep making them long after the class is over!
Health benefits of Ikebana
Ikebana is based in mindfulness, balance and appreciation of the natural world. As soon as you sit down to a table full of Ikebana supplies, you’ll feel a sense of peace and tranquillity wash over you. Allow yourself to fall into the flow state while you try new things and focus on your work. Before you know it, you’ll have absorbed all the benefits of a meditation practice, and you’ll walk away with a beautiful piece of art.
