Learn the art of Japanese flower arranging in this hands-on class

2 hours Class size 1 to 8 (public classes), 1 to 10

label $145 (or 4 payments of $36.25 Afterpay)

Ready to try a calming, meditative new activity that will put you in touch with nature? In this workshop, you will learn the essence of basic Ikebana flower arranging.

In this relaxing and contemplative process, our Ikebana expert Chihiro will teach you how to create your own unique flower arrangement. The session starts with a brief lecture on the historical and socio-cultural aspects of Ikebana. Then, participants will make a basic arrangement to learn the traditional design principles, and a freestyle arrangement to learn how to express themselves through Ikebana.

At the end of the session, we hope that you leave relaxed and fulfilled. You will likely find yourself re-energised through the magic of touching beautiful gifts of nature.

Participants arrive with nothing and leave with a flower work of art and the inspiration to make many more. This workshop is ideal for your special event such as hen's party or team building activity.

About Chihiro:
Chihiro is originally from Okayama prefecture and went on to study with the great masters of Ikebana in Tokyo. Her education spans 20 years.
To be a qualified Ikebana teacher, it takes a period of 7 years. An equivalent to a PHD!

We had a private class with Chihiro and had a great time. The pace was perfect, the location beautiful and the vibe was excellent (Jeremy is so welcoming and cheerful). Not to mention the delicious and gorgeous cupcake with endless tea.
We all walked away with unique floral arrangements using a 'freestyle' technique. The only improvement would be if we had the chance to also make a 'traditional' style arrangement as well.
Thank you both for the wonderful experience.

I had such a great time at the ikebana class on Sunday. Chihiro was wonderful teacher and she was so kind and encouraging! Jeremy was a dream to deal with and the space felt really calm and peaceful.

Chihiro is a very experienced and talent teacher. She was attentive and gave us lots of information from the history of Ikebana to the different schools of Ikebana. The whole class felt meditative and very calming. This is a great art form and I am intrigued and addicted.

The space was really great and inviting. Its in a lovely old building and full of charm and character. I also had the snacks, the cupcake was divine and we have lovely Japanese tea throughout.

What a perfect way to spend the evening Thank you Chihiro and Jeremy.

Jeremy was his charming welcoming self.
All materials were supplied and the class took place in the light well set up front room of Jeremy's clothing shop, a converted old style Shenton Park shop.
Chihiro was very informative about the art of Ikebana and was very patient and encouraging, making it fun to experiment and take risks when we set about developing our own arrangements. I feel I learnt a lot and found it a most enjoyable afternoon.
Thanks to you both.

We spent a lovely winter's afternoon playing with flowers in an amazing, gracious, period Australian space, surrounded by incredible pre-loved clothes.
Chihiro was warm, knowledgeable and very encouraging. Jeremy was his usual hospitable, crazy self.
Each student went home with a unique flower arrangement and the inspiration and knowledge to make a start on a very different and creative pursuit.
Most of all we felt welcomed and gently guided into a very Japanese experience of balance, tranquillity and beauty.

Lovely venue in Jeremy's pre-loved clothes shop. Chihiro was a friendly and encouraging teacher. A gentle introduction to an art form that takes 7 years to study formally!

Marika Oost Jun 2022

Such a gorgeous way to spend a Sunday. Jeremy is such a divine host with effortless grace and friendliness and Chirhiro a really special teacher. Softly spoken and articulate, and passionate. A brief and delicious(yes you get to eat cake! ) theory section provides an interesting background to Ikebana and Chirhio’s personal journey into this amazing craft.Her softness and sensitivity providing a beautiful introduction to creating your own version to take home. I was truly blown away with how nice it was to choose between a beautiful selection of hand gathered elements. Chihiro was patient and super encouraging. This peaceful class has inspired me to keep updating the piece I created. I could not recommend more highly.
