Ikebana Dojo Class: Aesthetics

Learn how to achieve gorgeous ikebana arrangements



4 x 30 mins Class size 1 to 6     label $10 - $40 ($10 for Single session, $40 for 4 sessions)


Learn Ikebana, the Japanese flower arrangement, in this live online ikebana aesthetics course! This two-part course is also a great supplement for those who are studying ikebana now or for those who would like to teach ikebana effectively.

This live online course, which is beginner-friendly, focuses on show and tell, with feedback from the instructor. Participants need to bring along an arrangement they have created prior to the session.

This program is based on modern ikebana curriculum, but it has an approach in common with a classic ikebana text written in the 16th century.

Under our curriculum, you will move from basic freestyle arrangements to classic basic styles to advanced freestyle arrangements. This will help you achieve your goals quickly and is easy to follow.

You can try to copy the sample ikebana arrangement in every detail (this is an effective traditional teaching method) but advanced students are encouraged to create their own freestyle works based on the same topic.

This course encourages you to continue practising your ikebana skills and provides plenty of tips, tricks and resources to help you along.

International Ikebana master, Mr Katayama will be a facilitator on January 26th 2021.

A common theme through many of his works is harmony with nature's organic order and the relationship between man and nature, where man is a part of the natural order rather than the owner of it.
