pp info_outline


In this fun and relaxing class, you'll use paintbrushes, acrylic paint, marker pens to make beautiful illustrations on pebbles. You'll choose from a variety of pebbles (sourced naturally from Sydney's Northern beaches), and express your creativity, with guidance wherever you need it.

You'll learn the techniques required to make structured and clear intricate patterns on a small scale (Zentangu), and learn about colour and pattern coordination.

You'll take away one or two painted stones (depending on the complexity of the design you choose), which can also be made into pendants. Great as a unique gift idea (or just keep them for yourself!)

For groups of 4+ students, we can use your venue, or Chatswood Bowling Club, as my place in Dee Why can only accommodate 2 to 3 students.

Note that this class is currently unavailable. It will become available again as of Feb 2019.

President of Ikenobo Ikebana Society (Sydney)

I started learning Ikebana since when I was ten, and studied graphic design after high school. My design background is what makes my approach to Ikebana particularly distinctive. I studied in Kyoto for three years, and received a diploma of Ikebana teaching. I've been teaching ever since, for decades, and I still enjoy it very much.

I was born in Fukuoka, and spent the first half of my life in Japan, but came to Australia in the 90s to indulge in Australia's ocean lifestyle. The sea continuously inspires me, and I've developed a passion for surf art. I paint on canvases, as well as seashore gems like sea glass and driftwood. The unique style of my surf art is shaped by my knowledge of Ikebana.
