Description


Make stunning Japanese-style flower arrangements with Setsuko Yanagisawa, who has over thirteen years of experience in the floral industry, specialising in the ‘Ikebana’ technique.

Go behind the scenes at one of Sydney’s most renown floristry boutiques, where Setsuko will patiently guide you step by step. 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. You'll discover the elegance of simplicity, how less can be more.

Take your unique floral creation home with you, and admire its elegance, sophistication, and beauty. Decorate your home 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 a different arrangement.

The class is held right next to Yuga cafe, so you can make this workshop part of a nice day out.

I went with a group of 3 girls and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely In the beautiful Glebe venue where the light-filled class room is surrounded and lightly scented by fresh flowers. From the mini history lesson on where Ikebana comes in the beginning of the class to the hands-on flower arrangement with Setsuko's assistance where you can let your imagination run wild. Will definitely recommend this workshop to everyone!

Loved the class, I bought it as a birthday present for my mum and we both enjoyed it. Setsuko provided feedback so felt like we got a lot out of it and we were able to take the fresh flowers we used home with us.

A very enjoyable couple of hours in a lovely flower studio. The teacher was very knowledgeable and there were plenty of vases and flowers available to put the theory into practice. Definitely recommend to anyone interested in floral work.

I loved everything about this class. It was the best way to start off a Saturday morning. The teach is amazing and has so much knowledge and even gave a history lesson on Japan.

I enjoyed the class very much. The teacher explained a bit about history of ikebana in Japan, Coffee was offered and all materials supplied and could take flowers used in the lesson home. We made three different designs of ikebana and the teacher was helpful and guided us on our displays. Will defiintelty go back again.

Setsuko began the class with a history of Ikebana. The two hours were spent using beautiful flowers and foliage, completing 3 different arrangements under the guidance of a great teacher. This class was great value for money, would recommend activity, great even if you have no experience with flowers. ( like me !! ) Thoroughly enjoyed it. :)

A most interesting and creative class - three charming demonstrations by our teacher were enlightening, each creating a totally different effect. A great lesson of less is more. I look at containers and vases now with a very different eye. This lesson - beautiful gift.

We did Setsuko's Ikebana flower arrangement class for my friend's hen's party. The class is set in a beautiful little workshop and has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. We were taught how to create simple and beautiful flower arrangements, and had a wonderful time.

Q&A

Can you give a bit more detail about the specific types of flowers and other plants we will likely use in this class?
Sam

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.
