Make stunning Japanese-style flower arrangements with Setsuko Yanagisawa, who has over thirteen years of experience in floristry, specialising in the ‘Ikebana’ technique.
Go behind the scenes at one of Sydney’s most renown floristry boutiques. In the tranquil surrounds of her workshop, you'll be transported away into a place of bliss and peace. Class sizes are purposely kept small to keep the experience intimate, and to ensure that you get enough one on one attention and feedback.
You’ll learn about the fascinating history of Ikebana, which in Japan is one of the three classical arts of refinement. You'll get unique tips and secrets on how best to combine elements, patterns and textures to create a cohesive masterpiece, as well as the logistical foundations of how to fasten and secure the flowers and their stems, and much, much more. Create your own floral arrangements with your new knowledge and skills, from the season's freshest blooms. Setsuko will guide you but also give you space to be creative. Discover the elegance of simplicity, how less can be more.
Take the flowers home with you. Practice and decorate your living space, or give someone a heartfelt gift. You’ll be amazed by what you’ll invent with your own two hands!
Great for both individuals and groups. Each student in each class will make their own arrangement.
The class is held right next to Yuga cafe, so you can make this workshop part of a nice day out.
No knowledge required. Beginners most welcome.
For those who have already done another flower arranging class before, this class can show you an interesting new perspective and give you some new skills.
Everything is provided. Just bring your enthusiasm!
You'll get to practice with a vase in the session, but you won't be able to take the vase home (though it's usually available for purchase on the day)
This class is ideal for individuals and couples as well as for a hens party, special occasion, team building activity, baby shower, birthday, bucks party, corporate event or Christmas party.
170 St. Johns Road, Glebe, NSW

Can you give a bit more detail about the specific types of flowers and other plants we will likely use in this class?
You will use seasonal flowers. Seasonality is important for the Japanese. Even with Australian natives. Below photos are some examples to give you an indication of what you'll work with, and create.
We'll keep you posted!
